Problem with creating a File

I have just started to work with Java Web Services. I implemented a service that creates just a black image and a web browser client, where you can input a path.
But actually it does not work. After submitting the targetpath I get the following error msg. in log File. access denied ( D:\temp\test.bmp delete)

I know that there is a security problem, when web services want to craete files. But how can I correct the problem?

Thank you for helping me,

Are you running the server with a SecurityManager? Then you would need to adjust its Policy to allow you to create files. Alternatively, create the file in the location you get from File.createTempFile.
I agree. Here's the link:
