hi, i have witten an applet which executes an exe file fromt he client's hard disk. It works fine with appletviewer but does not work in a browser. I would like to know how and in what manner i can allow the applet to run the exe file. I would like to know how to make certificate, if required.
Here is a link to the keytool docs: http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.3/docs/tooldocs/win32/keytool.html This is used to make a personally signed key. Most users will not accept it, but it will allow you to test your applet. After that you will need to purchase a certificate from Verisign or one of their competitors. This is very expensive to maintain as the certificate expires. Another approach is to use the java plug-in and have the user modify the local java.policy file. Hope this helps. David
