i would like to read from a file located on my server by way of an applet. i want this applet to run in a browser setting, preferably netscape. the applet does run from the appletviewer, but when i try to open the applet in my browser i get an error message from my browser status bar that states “Applet NameOfApplet notinited”, from my console i get the following error message: Java.security.AccessControlException: access denied (java.io.FilePermission NameOfFile read)
i have read several posts here, but i have not been fortunate enough to find one that will walk me through the process that i need to perform. where do i start?
thank you.

Hi Charlotte,
Applets can't read local files without creating a signed jar file. Read about it signing FAQ .
You can however, use the lines I gave you above to read a file located on the server in which the applet was loaded from.
Regards,
Manfred.

hi manfred,
i am somewhat perturbed. i have created some signed applets/jar files, but i feel as if i have been pretty much shooting in the dark. i have read several post on the forums here and they are directed to some url for the most part. i have visited several of the sites and gone through tutorials, but i fear that i am missing the over all picture.
i have also visited the site that you recommended... but my efforts have availed me little.
the code that i have written was created on my local machine, i then copied the text file, the html file, the class file, the jar file over to my test server. it runs on my test server in IE so what am i not understanding about this?
thanks.
