applet works inconsistenlty
Posted on 1999-01-25
I have created an applet that uses Novell's JavaBeans to get a user's NDS name from the tree. In the process of getting this to work, I experimented with signed applets, editing policy files, changing classpath, etc. on my machine. Then I downloaded Sun's Java Plug-in. I couldn't get that to
work, so I downloaded a couple of different versions. Then I upgraded my Netscape to version 4.07 and tried again, and this time it worked. I now have two applets created and compiled on my computer, and copied to our intranet server, so that when I visit their pages in Netscape, the
applets work completely.
The problem - my computer is the only one that will run these applets. I have tried copying the class and JavaBeans to the other computers, using the same version of Netscape, downloading both plugin versions, changing classpath, even copying files such as java.security and java.policy to their
respective places on the other machine. None of this works. I get 'AccessControlException' and 'PropertyPermissionError' when I try to run them.
Please help, I have been working on this for over a week with no solution in sight.
