Hi frnds,
please help me with this. I am trying to display an image on the applet. the image resides in the "images/listBackgr.gif" directory on the server and the applet is placed on the root path. with i try to access the image from the Applet using the code following i get an error.
JLabel imgTry = new JLabel();
imgTry.setIcon(new ImageIcon(getCodeBase() + "/images/listBackgr.gif"));

The Error is......

java.security.AccessControlException: access denied (java.io.FilePermission http://localhost/envoy_ws_new/Live/EN//images/listBackgr.gif read)

Hi "The Mask"!
You can JAR your images directory with the Applet jar and then use getResource() which is there in the java.lang.Class. You will have to use this.getClass().getResource("/images/1.gif") I guess which will give you the URL that you can pass to ImageIcon constructor..
