Hello friends...

My applet is showin only the root that is (My computer) on top of my jTree but not showing nodes as should be like a:\, c:\, d:\, etc....
But when i am running this same application as swing its showing exactly as i wanted.. I came to know that its a matter of Signed and unsigned Applet which i have no idea of exactly what it is..
Can you Please help me?..
Thank you

Haven't faced this problem before, but applet restrictions and how to circumvent them is discussed at HowCanAnAppletReadFilesOnTheLocalFileSystem

I guess this might be due to the limitations on applets.
I think changes in the policy file in your JDK might work.
