I wrote a class that writes a simple text file.
I packaged it in a signed applet and now it will not write the file.

public void writeFile(String text,String name) {
try{
File outputFile = new File(name);
FileWriter out = new FileWriter(outputFile);
out.write(text);
out.close();
}
catch(IOException e){
System.out.println("ReadWriteUtility write error: " + e);
}
}
Worked fine before but not when I put it in a signed jar.

Do you get an exception?

If there's no exceptions, then the write worked. Maybe it's not ending up in the directory you think, who knows what the "current working directory" for an applet is, but the file is being written. You can find the path of a file with File.getAbsolutePath(). Try printing it out.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
