hi all
I am really worried that I can not purchase a certificate to authenticate my applet. My applet will read resources from client side and send it to my server. My concern is, Will a self signing is sufficient for all applet security issues or is there a possibility of getting restricted (incurring curses from my client ) at my client's 'high secured' environment ?

Why can't you purchase a certificate?

While a self-signed certificate is functionally as good as a "proper" one, in a "highly secure" environment that's unlikely to be acceptable.

Gravity is a harsh mistress. But this tiny ad is pretty easy to deal with:
