Applet Security Exception

Hey Everyone ... just need a little bit of direction. I'm currently developing an applet off an existing application. I'm looking to pass a param into the applet that gives the location of a file on the server that is parsed by the applet. The applet is not touching the user's machine so everything is happening on the server. Right now, I'm getting some security exceptions when the applet tries to open the remote file. Is there a way I can access the file without having to get the applet signed?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks Brian!

As long as the file is on the same server where the applet was served from, it should work without the applet being signed. See "HelloServerFile" in for an example of how to do it.
I agree. Here's the link:
