Hi

If I run an unsigned applet from the command prompt, will it use the same security manager as an unsigned applet downloaded from the internet?

Thanks
Joe

Sun's appletviewer used to launch applets without a security manager, same as many IDEs do currently when launching an applet (using applet viewer). But the applet viewer built into the Oracle Java 6 SDK when launched from the command line, will sand-box applets.

Thanks Andrew.

So in terms of the SCEA 5 exam, an unsigned applet loaded from the command prompt is NOT subject to the same restrictions as an unsigned applet loaded over the network?

Thanks
Joe

I believe Andrew says that applets launched using the Java 6 Applet viewer WILL be subjected to the same restrictions as do applets loaded from over the network.
