If you're talking about getting data from a client-side Java applet to a server-side Perl script, you need to have the applet make a network connection to pass the data. One way would be to write a CGI script in Perl to accept the data, then have the applet submit the data as a CGI request. (See CGI for information on how to write a CGI script, and check out the java.net.URL and java.net.URLConnection classes for more information on how to submit an HTTP request.)

The applet may or may not be able to make such a connection, depending on the security options that the browser's user has chosen.

If you just need information about stock quotes, I suggest you check out the Finance::Quote module, which you can use to fetch quotes from a variety of different sites. I suspect that this method may be your best option. (I haven't used it myself, but it appears to be a well-developed module.) If you use it successfully, you may want to submit a review of it to our Module Reviews section.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
