Can anyone help explain to me or point me to a link that explains the security issues when using Runtime.getRuntime.exec(etc.)?
I'm creating a GUI and remote access front-end applet for some files that are manipulated by a suite of optimized, C command-line programs. Eventually the command-line programs will be run on a remote server, but just for getting the interface up and running I want to be able to test it running the C programs from my own machine, but am getting security exceptions (saying access denied for exec on all files) because it's an applet. Also, the code works if I write it as just a normal command-lin class, not an applet, so I'm assuming it truly is a security issue.
Thanks in advance.
