This week's giveaway is in the EJB and other Java EE Technologies forum. We're giving away four copies of EJB 3 in Action and have Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Ryan Cuprak, and Michael Remijan on-line! See this thread for details.
a)Can an applet (signed or unsigned) make a connection to other machines besides the host if its policy file allows it. Assume it running in a browser and not applet viewer (i.e. code base is not local)
b) Can an applet make write to local files if its policy file allows it. Does it still have to be signed. Assume it running in a browser and not applet viewer. i.e. code base is not local
Is there any exception to signed applets. i.e. irrespective of signing only policy files takes precedence
