This is an example of something that in general you cannot do with Java it is said. I download my bank statement in QIF format. It is stored and starts Money to process it.
I assume some kind of trusted applet can do that. Is there a way that you can offer a person to install the applet to do this and have them say yes or no and after that the next time they try to get the bank statement they don't have to answer any of that security stuff again.
I have not done any of this but if it is really tough I think this is a problem for Java. I guess it would mean that applets are not very useful on the internet.
Can someone point me the right way and give some general answers to this question.
TIA

You need to sign your applet and then ask Netscape for permission to write to the disk.
