Hi

Can a trusted/signed applet modify a system property?

Thanks
Joe

Yes. At least in java 2, a SIGNED applet can modify a system property ONLY IF it has a policy entry to that effect. These policies for signed applets are configurable by the System Administrator

If the applet is signed but does not have any policies does it automatically default to AllPermissions?

Thanks

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
