I've taken on a project where I have to code an applet that gathers information and sends it to a database. The thing is though, that the client's website is being hosted by some other unknown company.
I have the impression that in order for this to work, the database will have to be on the same server the site is hosted on, am I correct assuming this? Otherwise, how would one gather information from an applet, and let it connect to a database that's on one of the clients PC at their company/not on the server the site is on?
I'm not asking for code, just a push in the right direction...
