Hi JavaRanchers,

I am trying to deploy a simple chat application using Java Web Start, the application being a JAR file invoked by a .jnlp link on an HTML page. The chain of events work flawlessly locally, but once installed on the Web server it gags and the Java Web Start manager coughs up the following: access denied ( images/DC.jpg read)

I�m admittedly quite green, but can anybody tell me why this is happening and what steps I need to take to correct it? Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a million, Sudhanshu. Adding that <security> code to the .jnlp file and then signing the JAR made it work.
I agree. Here's the link:
