Hi , I have a couple of questions related to Java and security : 1) Does a standalone Java application inherit the rights of the user that is logged on ? E.g: An application is installed on a workStation in a Windows 2000 Active directory enabled domain. The user uses the java application to save/delete/update files on the Network File Server. Are these operations constrained by the Active Directory User rights in the domain ? 2) When in your application you use things like JFilechooser, does Java transfert the actual directory exploration to the underlaying operating system ? Or has Java implemented its own protocol ? For instance, on a Windows platform, transferring the exploration to windows would mean the use of NetBIOS/NetBUI(Windows Explorer) based protocols on the network. This has an impact on the network traffic, and authentication. It is a problem if the network is a Routed TCP/IP enabled one ! So what is the underlaying protocol for JFileChooser ? What security feature does it support ? Thank in advance.
