from one other forum , i saw one comment
"When you use AccessController.doPrivileged to invoke those operations, the operation is executed with all the rights(permissions) of your protection domain. Hence if your code has enough rights only then it could execute those operations."
What i understood from above is ,if we try to access system property from AccessController.doPrivileged() it should work ,Please correct me .. i think i am wrong ..
Kindly help me to get a clear picture of
1)when we need to use AccessController.doPrivileged() ?.(if SecurityManager is present we use AccessController.doPrivileged why this is failing in above example )
2) what is the real advantage we are getting by using AccessController and PrivilegedAction?.
3) Do we need custom policy file for above example to work ?

Don’t know myself, but I think your question is too difficult for “beginning”, so shall move it. You might get more attention because your question will appear twice for a few days.
