Here is the deal. Applets cant read or write to the clients local system, because if they could, then people could write code that does "bad stuff". But if you want your applet to do this you sign it and then the client can choose to let you read/write or whatever to their local system. For more info I can give you an article that will teach you exactly what a signed applet is and exactly how to do it, if all you are interested in is loading up your applet and having it work properly in appletviewer. It is a very helpful article.
But if you want to learn how to do bring such an applet up and have do reading/writing in your browser- well in that case I cant help you. I opened your posting hoping that you had the answer Ive been looking for a couple weeks now for how to do it.
Anyway, I think even if your final goal is to bring it up in a browser, you should still check out that article, go through the example, and then join me in my search (that seems to be going nowhere) for how to sign an applet for Internet Explorer or other browsers.
hope this helps
