i am trying to launch a java applet from an html file
i have created the applet, and it runs fine on its own
(in Visual Cafe).  But when try to run it from the html
file, i get the error:

Exception com.ms.security SecurityExceptionE... (can't see all of it)

the html file and java class file are in the same folder.

what is going wrong?

What does your Applet do? This exception is a Security problem.
Do you try to read/write a file, connect to a DB, or make a
socket connection....???

Okey, then its becouse you read som txt files, you cant read
a text file from an applet, as run in a browser, becouse the
browser will not alow it. It's a Security problem, becouse
when a client goes into your site, then he/she download your
applet, and it will then run local. So if you will load a file
from your machine, out to the clients mashine, then you have
to make a server application on your mashine, and make your
applet as a client applet.
So the client can get your txt files thrue the server
application.

I hope this will help you....Good luck.....

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hehehe okey, Big mistake...Bec(a)use....Thanks, I'll remember that, oh btw. I, always spelled with a big I. Now we are even.

To your comment:
Okey, if you doesn't have to run thru a browser, then
there are no problems.....
But it's not a big thing to make client/server applications/
applets in java, you have all the classes, in your jdk.
