Ok, what I need to do is make something I don''t know if it would be a applet or whatever to make this but yea.. I want to have a Java applet that you can logon when you go on the website and update news and stuff like that on the website. I don''t know if i would use JDBC or not. Another problem is how would i have the HTML get whats in the database onto the site?

IMHO something like PHP is a better solution for this, but it can be done with Java. You need to make a java program that generates the html pages based on information from a database. That program will run on the server. I don''t have much experience with serverside java, but you could google for it...

This can be done via an Applet, yes, but more commonly you would use a Servlet and/or JSP. Both require a servlet container. JFBS would not be required if you are using a flat file or hardwired login/password data.

Seek out Marty Hall''s Servlet book - it has everything you need for that kind of thing, is well written and has an example of what you are talking about.
