Hi guys,
Can you have file downloading through an applet? As far as I know with applet security, an applet could not access the file system of the client in which it runs, making file saving on the hard drive of the client impossible.
Ex Animo Java!

It's perfectly alright to download data from a server in an applet. The sticky part comes only if you want to write that data to a disk file.
To do that, you must digitally sign the applet.
