Is it possible to send Java Applets from a FastCGI server to the browser using 
MIME types or any other method?

	I do not know what MIME type is used, when the browser requests a 
Java applet, so that it can start a Java VM.  I believe it just sends
Content-type: application/octet-stream but not sure.  In any case, 
there is no reason that a FastCgi application could not just set the
Content-type header to the above and then send the java applet to the
server that sends it to the browser, although the point of doing that
escapes me.  Maybe you can be more precise at what exactly you are
trying to accomplish.
