I am writing an Applet and get an exception trying to read a file in the same folder.
I have read files from Applets before???
public void loadQuiz(String selection) throws IOException {
BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new FileReader(selection + ".txt"));
Exception occurred during event dispatching:
java.security.AccessControlException: access denied (java.io.FilePermission Easy.txt read)

I should have searched before I asked. It seems I have to open the stream using a URL instead of a String.
 
All of the following truths are shameless lies. But what about this tiny ad:
