I signed the jar for my applet using jarsigner.
the applet is made for browsing your harddisk in order to upload some pictures so I needed a signed applet.
Anyway I signed the applet and still i get this error:

java.security.AccessControlException: access denied (java.io.FilePermission C:\Documents and Settings\josy\Mijn documenten read)

I haven't done it myself, but I've heard people say running code as privileged code helps. See the last paragraph of "Signing an applet" in http://faq.javaranch.com/java/HowCanAnAppletReadFilesOnTheLocalFileSystem

I just ran an applet from a jar that I signed and it was able to read a file from my C: drive. It wasn't able to read the file before I signed it.

Here are the commands I used to sign the jar file:


@REM Sign AppletReader.jar to new jar file
@rem commandline used to create keystore:
@echo keytool -genkey -alias signApplet -keypass NormsKey -keystore NormsKS -storepass NormsStore
jarsigner -keystore NormsKS -signedjar sAppletReader.jar AppletReader.jar signApplet



Here's the code in the applet:
