In using Win 2k with JDK 1.4.0, how do you prevent an "Access is Denied" FileNotFoundException in my app when writing a file to another computer (through mapped drive, for example)?
This is similar to a question posted by someone over a year ago here, which was never answered.
Here's a simplified code snippet below, taken out of a web app. This was also tested in a basic app writing to a console.

I'm not real clear on FilePermission class, if it's even applicable here... but the drive has already been mapped so I'm confused about the exception being thrown.
Thanks!

It appears there is no Samba (Win networking) support in Java, at least officially.
Of course, there's always workarounds... but nothing I can think of that would work on a production environment. I'm not a C++ programmer so JNI is out...
Any ideas, if any, are welcome.

Saw it in the Java.sun.com forum post, but didn't think of it since I had used a much older version unsuccessfully.
However, seems that 0.6.6 is working fairly well. I hope it's good for a production environment.
Thanks.
