With the new java 8 the security is just too strict
I want to write applets and upload them to my own website and share them with people, i cant tell every one who wants to use my applet to downgrade to java 7
How do I make java (on other machines) recognize that my applets are not a threat?
@Ahmad is quite correct. Applets do not appear to have any future. They were a good idea, but the environment did not bear them out (even in the past). Applets still get occasional use in internal applications behind the firewall, but not very commonly. The JNLP suggestion is an excellent idea.
Also, and this will only apply to a certain audience, you might think of writing Android apps. Users can download your app into their device, and it uses a Java syntax. All the usual restrictions would apply--smaller hardware, not iPhone, etc. Just a suggestion.
If a chicken that is half full crosses the road, will anyone hear it?
