Signed Applet writing to file

I know that the signed applet is working properly as I can do an exec and copy a local file to lpt1. However, when I go to create the file, nothing happens - no security exception, no ioexception. No value in tmp. Probably a dumb mistake, but I'm not too proud to admit it...

String tmp=new String();
// Create temp file for writing print command to file
File temp = new File("c:/temp", "print.tmp");
boolean success = temp.createNewFile();
if (success) {
// File did not exist and was created
tmp="new file created";
} else {
// File already exists
tmp="file already exists";

// Write to file
BufferedWriter out = new BufferedWriter(new FileWriter(temp));

Ignore this topic. I had a shadow jar file that my html page was looking at. All is good now.

I agree. Here's the link:
