Goetz's Signature Applet
Goetz’s Signature Applet is an Applet for capturing and sending a written signature over the Internet. This freeware Java applet replaces the need for sites to have a visitor type their name in lieu of them signing. A visitor signs a form by using their mouse to write directly on the applet. When the form is submitted, the applet transmits to the server the coordinate segments that constitute the signature. A CGI script can then interpret the coordinates and recreate the signature as an image file. A working demonstration of Goetz’s Signature Applet which generates a JPEG image is shown on the web site.
