Applet may be not a popular topic in this forum. However, can any one help me aobut how to configure the applet so that it will disallow the call from a java script. I undertand now applet has the same seucrity model as a standalone app. It is user's enviromnet security configuarion that controle the security settings for any applet running in the client's browser. But I hope there is a way to remove persmissions from applet as this is towards the safe side. I read from some other forum, that in plun-in model(vs browser's jvm), it is no longer possible to call applet method from a java script.
Can any one suggests some resource on this issue?
Thanks,

Jack,

In the past few days we spoke a lot about the applet/security issues in the http://groups.yahoo.com/group/scea_j2ee forum.
The thread name is "Can an unsigned Applet be able to update a system property".

Regards,
Dan
