Topic: PDF form in Java applet ?

Hello all, I am now working on a project. One of our
client's web is hosting at a local ISP. The local ISP
not allow any server side programming. ie our client an
only upload html, graphics, real media etc etc to the
local ISP (no CGI, no Perl, no SQL Server.) But our
client would like to use PDF form and would like
the form data send back to them by e-mail (for some
reason, our client can't change ISP before
end of 2002).

I guess to solve this problem, need a Java Applet which
can display PDF form, capture the form data (FDF) and
e-mail it. We know how to send e-mail in Java applet,
but don't know how to handle PDF form in Java applet
(assume all user have Acrobat Reader install). Can
anyone give a hint ? Any web an find resource on this ?
Or we are in totally wrong direction ? (ie should not
go for Java)?

Thanks in advance.
