This code works fine if the URL that I'm opening up is on the same server as the web-server hosting my Applet. But if the URL I'm opening is on a different web server I get the exception.
Below is the snippet of code that fails and the java stack trace.
This applet is a modified sample Applet for viewing images from IBM Content Manager similar to the eClient Applet viewer. I only mention it so people doing searches in the future might find this thread. If you haven't heard of Content Manager that's ok - this is a straight up Java question.
Can someone familiar with Applet security lend a hand and help me figure out what I have to do?
If needed, I could change the client policy files so the people's JREs can view the images. I just need some direction on how to do it.
