As far as I know what applet can do is very limited. I saw a lots of messages posted here are trying to explore than the functionality of the Applet. Prior to this, i got one question.

There are lots of servlet out there,will the applet be phase out soon? since we have Flash (to add website's dynamicity), we have servlet (to do database connectivity). Then what's the real functionality for applet?

I have a good scenario, can we use applet to do some processing that do the processing in the server side? for example we have a library system, the first step to borrow book is to login as authorised user. Can this authentication be done using applet? If can, can show me your proof?
