Applet can't write to the file, Permission denied

Hi,

I always get back to this great forum. I have a problem with the Applet. I build a Java Applet that when a button is pressed, some java classes in eclipse will create a file and then the Applet should be able to write to this file. But it seems that there is a java.io exception, where it says: permission denied on /home/mouza/public.xml write!

I tried changing the permission of the Applet class to u=rwx and let the applet sets the file permission using java too, but also didn't work!

How can I solve this prob?

By default, applets can't access the local file system as a security precaution. The HowCanAnAppletReadFilesOnTheLocalFileSystem page explains how to get around that.

Thanks,

When I was googling, I found that I have to sign the applet, but getting arround not buying a certificate from thawt is the issue now.

For development you can use a self-signed certificate.
