Hi all,

I am wondering if someone can guide me to a tutorial or instructions on how I can configure an applet to get access to local resources such as file system, browser, etc.

I appreciate any help,

Have you read the Java tutorial on applet security: http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/deployment/applet/security.html
