Halo ,
now I am trying to develope an applet, but i face some problem which is the applet need to grant some permission...
Since applet will put on the network for testing purpose, i dont want edit the policy file for each computer on the network, so i wanna ask how to grant permission from applet so let the user grant permission ? which mean will prompt out message when user open the applet..
I read through many article but me quite confuse... whether the applet must get cert from CA to do that ? or can sign by myself?
Please tell me how to do the comfirm box can auto prompt out when user open the applet.
Thanks for reply.

Hello ,
Well for making a signed applet you can self sign an applet and you have to grant permission in java.policy file of your server and when it would work properly, and as far as I ahev seen most of the signed applets are self sign as I myself mad a signed applet for our users and I realised it is not necessary that applet should be authenticate by the CA or verisign.
Thanks
