Why is this? Every example I look at when trying to learn how to do a trusted applet you have to manipulate or place some file on the users local PC. That is unrealistic when deploying an applet, especially if you don't have access to those local machines. Can someone explain, give a link, or show me how to make a trusted applet where I don't have to do anything with the local machine? Is signing the JAR file enough? It seems that an applet wants a permissions file as well, but I don't know. Thanks.
