    file upload applet in php

    was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction to get started learning how to build Java Applets for my PHP page. I would like to create an app similar to this file uploading applet by SoftArtisans.

    Of course, that's just my opinion. I could be wrong.

    Why do you need to do it in java?? Php has file upload capabilities built in...just google for 'php upload' or something similar and you should get plenty of links

    i currently am using PHP's upload file capabilities, but have you seen the Java applet i'm talking about? it will let users select multiple photos easily, and (i think) even has capabilities for 'drag and drop' (or that might be an ActiveX control)... anyway, i just thought the possibility of having an applet would increase users happiness with the program.

    From my point of view as a web user, I hate Java applets with a passion.

    Just my 2 worth

    Integrate applets the same way you would integrate them in HTML. In fact, jump out of PHP and integrate them and then back into PHP if you wish.

    Java Applet ? I have nothing against Java, although I'd like to think that you could incoporate drag n' drop via the DOM and use that in conjunction with server-side PHP ?

    Wouldn't be that difficult really; there are plenty of DOM drag n' drop scripts available which you could easilly re-engineer to your needs...

    Just my thoughts that's all

    Hey Doc, I'll be on Google searching for this right away, but could you point out any of your favourite resources? I am just a beginner when it comes to the DOM, but I read about it not even a week ago and am interested in pursuing. Thanks for the advice. Cheers!

    Ummm....

    The place that I started to learn from is some articles at www.scotandrew.com and follow the 'archives' link at the top of the page.

    This used to be a developer site but now the owner uses it more for a web-log; There is some stuff in there that'll help you learn more about the DOM cross-browser; very rich...

    Also try www.webreference.com/js; their articles and tips cover the DOM. Another resource would be either www.articlecentral.com and/or www.wdvl.com

    On the first site I mentioned you might also find several DOM APIs that could save you time if your prepared to read over some documentation ?

    If you need help using the DOM I can really recommend that you sign up to and use www.siteexperts.com as they have some decent members who really know what they're doing with Javascript, DOM and CSS etc; anything client-side really; you'll proberly find an answer there quicker than here at sitepoint ?

    No offence to sitepoint folks, but siteexperts do have that edge, slightly

    Also for reference have a look at mozilla as basically all their stuff covers Opera7.0+, Netscape6.2+ and Mozilla0.91+

    IE specific look at MS... Hope this all helps you on your way...

    Any script help, I'll see what I can help out with/advice ?
