Hello everyone,
I am sure this must be in a FAQ somewhere but I did a search here and though this question has been asked once, there has been no 'solution'.
I have been writing a java application (which runs fine) and decided to convert it into an applet but ran into file reading problems. I am trying to simply load a 'gif' image but I get the following error when I try to load the applet:
java.security.AccessControlException: access denied (java.io.FilePermission someimage.gif read)
The class, 'gif' file and html page are all in the same directory. I get the same error loading the applet from a local directory or a server, using absolute or relative URL. I get the error even if I use a jar file.
Here is the line that tries to read the gif file:
ImageIcon cardImage = new ImageIcon("someimage.gif");

Thanks Manfred for the pointer.
Sorry about the choice of nicks. Didn't pay attention to the fine print.
