Abstract

Disclosed is a method to help Java class to read parameters defined in external files. Usually, client Java applications must extends java.applet.Applet class to be able to read parameters defined in external files. This method allows the classes which do not extend java.applet.Applet class to read parameters as follows; 1) Prepare an applet with any HTML file which defines tag in the tag.

A method to help Java class to read parameters defined in external files

    Disclosed is a method to help Java class to read parameters defined in
external files.

    Usually, client Java applications must extends java.applet.Applet class to be
able to read parameters defined in external files.

    This method allows the classes which do not extend java.applet.Applet class to
read parameters as follows;

    1) Prepare an applet with any HTML file which defines <PARAM> tag in the
<APPLET> tag.

2) This applet waits a socket connection from any Java class.
3) The Java class which wants to get parameters in the HTML file, establish a
client socket connection to the applet.

    4) After the connection, the applet read the parameter definitions in the HTML
and send them to the Java class.

    IBM SecureWay Host-On-Demand allows users to create Java class using HACL(Host
Access Class Library),
but this interface doesn't allow user to read parameters in the HTML files HoD
offers.

    In this case, the implementation above is effective.
In general, client Java application is not always allowed to access parameters
in HTML files, this method is also effective for the application.
