Getting a WWW-page

I'm working with a program that uses the following lines to get a www-page (form Visual J++ sourcebook). When I run
from within J++ it works, but with a browser the following
run-time error occurs "security. Couldn't connect to www.foo.foo with orgin from file". Whats up? I've also used
JDK, but I get the same result.

InputStream conx;
DataInputStream text;
String line;
StringBuffer b=new StringBuffer();

try{
                   conx=this.myUrl.openStream();
text=new DataInputStream(new BufferedInputStream(conx));
while ((line=text.readLine())!=null){
      b.append(line+"\n");
      }
}
catch(Exception e){
 showStatus ("Error reading file: "+ e.getMessage());
}

It is not clear from your code to which URL you are trying to connect. The security model for applets and applications is different. An applet can not open any URL only a URL from the domain that it came from. Is your URL points to the machine that the applet comes from? If not make a test and try this kind of URL. I think that it will work. Bypassing this security model is possible but involves a lot of effort.
