Hi,
I have an applet that is added to an html page that need to accces
the files from client m/c.
In order to make it work on my machine i made changes in .java.policy file granting
allPermission.
Now, i understand that i need to
make my applet a signed applet.After reading some docs I managed to make myCert
using keytool and then a myApplet.jar file combining myApplet.java MyApplet.class and com
(I got com package from C:\WINNT\java\Packages\GCTBP3N9.ZIP file).And then i
used jarSigner to sign my myApplet.jar with the certificate i created.
I canot however get anythg concrete through this neither through appletviewer
nor through browser.
I can post my code if ny one is interested to have a look.
Help,
Shelly

Input & output Streams are tricky (specially with applets).
Good urls with applet signing are:

http://developer.java.sun.com/developer/technicalArticles/Security/Signed/
http://www.onjava.com/lpt/a/706
Hope that helps!

Hi again,
Some articles on net says "that we need to get our certifate
signing request need to be submitted to Certiface autority(C.A)
for them to authorize it". While in other articles there is
no mention of the same.(would like to add then even the latter
didnt help me reach anywhere
I first want to be clear if sending a reqeust to CA is mandatory.
Regards,
Shelly
