I'm writing a Picture Viewer applet to be used on the web. It works fine when i first extended as a Frame, but when i incorporate it into an applet, it gives me AccessControlException. here is the code that gives me problem: /*i'm retriving all picture files from the pathName through the PictureFileFilter that implements the FilenameFilter and store into a listFile using the File.listFiles() method.*/
File myDIR = new File(pathName); File listFiles = myDIR.listFiles(new PictureFileFilter()); -i've tried to use URL instead of getting the string of the path to post the image onto the JLabel, but that didn't help. -i know it's a security issue with the applet security manager, but is there a way to get around it? the following is my exception: java.security.AccessControlException: access denied (java.io.FilePermission \pictures read); -is there a way to change the filepermission of the security? thank you all for reading this post. any help would be greatly appreciated. kj
