NullPointerException: name can't be null

Good day!
I have this code which I want to implement in an Applet and put in on a JSP page after.

But after running this program, I get this error:

java.lang.NullPointerException: name can't be null
at java.io.FilePermission.init(Unknown Source)
at java.io.FilePermission.<init>(Unknown Source)
at java.lang.SecurityManager.checkDelete(Unknown Source)

What is lacking in my code?

In order to perform socket I/O applets generally need to be signed; is that the case?

As an aside, you should remove the constructor, and move everything that's in it into an init() method.
