I might be wrong, but I think java can interact with other info on a page,
if not directly - through a simple javascript gobetween script. 

Somebody posted a note a few days ago, saying he has a direct javascript to
db access, I haven't seen or heard anything remotely close to it yet. The
only way I know about (and the safest yet) is through the comon gate
interface (CGI).
