I am programming an applet with JDK1.1 that should be able to print the images it contains. I found out that even if I sign my applet and configure the client to trust it, no browser would allow my applet to overcome the sandbox restrictions unless my client downloads the Java 2 runtime enviroment including the java plug-in software. I don't want my clients to download huge amounts of data in order to be able to use the printing functionality of my applet. Is there a way to print from an applet in JDK1.x ? or a way to work around the security restrictions without signing applets which obviously doesn't work in the Java 1 enviroment? Any suggestions?
