I am new to java programming.
I am assigned to write an applet simulator/originally in matlab code but now its needed to be in java applet for web interactivity/ , which draws graphics on a JPanel, based on the a 102X102 matrix data (many *.txt files) stored in the same server. The data is so huge(about 76MB) that the applet can't load it once and the applet should interact back and forth based on user selections.

In short,
* multiple text files(102X102 decimal #matrices) in the same server as the applet,
*applet having GUI for user input and flexible selection, which file analyse and plot,

Does applets have this characterstics? How can I start this, few lines of ideas and resources please.

Very much thanks in advance.
