I need to read a text file in an applet, but every time I do, Netscape starts throwing security exceptions. Is there some way around this? Am I not reading the file properly?
Thanks in advance,
Brian.

Is your applet signed? In order to work with the file system, you need a signed applet.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
