I have got a problem with myApplet :
access denied(java.util.propertyPermission user.dir read)
This is when I Try to read an XML file, using :
dbf = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance();
db = dbf.newDocumentBuilder();
...
File fic = new File(fichier);
Document doc = db.parse( fic);
...
The errors appends at :
Document doc = db.parse( fic);

I manage to read a normal Txt file with my Applet! so I don't understand...
I tried to modify the policy file, without any results...
Can anyone help me, please?
Thanks!

I've solve the problem!
Using the method :
DocumentBuilder.parse(InputStream is)
Instead of
DocumentBuilder.parse(File f)
But if someone can tell me why it does not work while passing a "File parametere", he's welcome!

'Cos unless you sign the applet, it's not allowed to open files. The applet sandbox forbids it. InputStreams are not restricted, since they can come from other places than just files (for example, via the network).

How can I "de-sign" an applet?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
