but how do i make it so that the server application is running before the applet loads?
and how do i make it so that when 2 different people visit the website with the applet they both use the same CheckerServer application?How is the applet connecting with the application now? I would assume it connects to some IP address and port. So both clients need to connect to the same port on the same server--the one that served them in the first place. I don't really understand what problem you're having here.
Anything helps, if needed i can upload my code here, but is rather long. the applet is a combination of 5 classes and then theres the server appIf it comes to that, you most certainly will not upload your app. Not if you want anybody to read it anyway. If your question is about applet/server connectivity, you would write a tiny [url http://sscce.org]SSCCE that just has enough pieces to have an applet and a server trying to talk. No GUI stuff, no checkers game logic. None of that fluff.
