Thanks for the tip... I am working on something related.  There are
resources at the server for which there must be an agent on the client
side for negotiation.  The idea is to manage the load on the server.
The agent is an applet which you keep alive (e.g. in a separate
browser window) while you are browsing with a regular HTTP browser.
My biggest problem is the security restrictions placed on applets by
Netscape, which makes it difficult to have mobile agents with
persistent state.  Maybe the only solution in the long term is to have
the agent be an extension to the browser...

By the way does anyone know if there are any other browsers out there
supporting java applets but without any security restrictions?
(Explorer?...)
