I am writing an applet, basically just a counter applet (I know its been done before but I am a beginner trying to gain understanding).
What I want to do is read in a file called Count that contains a number. Then display that number in the applet. That part works fine. However, after the display is updated I want to take that number, increase it by one, then write that number back to the file Count.
Is this possible? I keep getting security issues, the file count is in the same directory as the applet.
Thanx,
Ryan

I think I know why it isn't in theory but with the way my setup is, I don't understand to clearly.
Here is what I have:
I have the applet running on my workstation, not from a server, its in the same directory as the file I want to write to.
I believe it doesn't work because even though the files are all on the same machine, the appletviewer and/or browser treats it like its on a server. Therefore copies the applet and runs it but can't update it because applets cannot access files on the client side.
How do I get that file updated?
