The button should create and show a FileDialog or JFileChooser. Once the file is chosen, you use any of the java.io classes to read it. Of course, the applet needs to be signed to do any of this, or it won't be allowed to use these classes.

Yes, that's exactly what the classes I mentioned do. If you're having trouble using them, you can read up JFileChooser here and on FileDialog here.
