Hi ! all

I have a quick question. 

I know that if there is a GET method specified in the HTML form as the
means of communication between the client and the server then one can use
the URL(with special strings and the query in it) to retrieve the HTML
page via a java program.

Is there anyway one can communicate with a gateway program via a java
applet if the gateway program handles POST requests as opposed to GET. In
otherwords how do u communicate with a GAteway (CGI) program that does not
get its data via a URL ?

Thanks

Jayesh.
