can applets under normal conditions call native methods??
if yes then isnt it a security hazard
if no then how can the applets use native methods defined in the java standard library..

hai ,
applets can access native methods when it is accessing its own host.
for e.g suppose u r downloading an applet from then that applet can't access the native methods
in ur machine. but it can access native methods of yahoo server machine.
