hi,

i am trying to print an image using which works fine on http and https protocols on some environmets. but it fails on one of our environments where we are using https.
This image is placed in WEB-INF folder(for security purpose) and is rendered by a servlet which authenticates the user and then renders the image.
what are the possible reasons of exception?
how do rectify the problem?
please help as soon as possible.

thanks,

k ganvir

Welcome to JavaRanch.

For an applet to be allowed to print, it needs to be either signed, or the local security policy altered. Which approach are you taking?
