Xerces XML parser in applet.

Hello!

I have found a problem with using Apache Xerces XML pasrer in applet.

I'm creating a control that uses xerces parser and can work as application or applet. When it works as application all is Ok. But when I try to start it as an applet then java.security.AccessControlException is thrown with the following description

java.security.AccessControlException: access denied ( java.util.PropertyPermission jaxp.debug read)

This error is throw during execution if instruction

javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance().

What to do?

This is tricky.
The DocumentBuilderFactory returns an object whose type is obviously dependent upon some system property. It may be OS dependent or language/locale dependent (I'm not sure).

Applets (as a rule) do not have priviledges to look at these system properties as they are "sandboxed" for security reasons.

I am not sure how to get round it but I am sure I have in the past.

Can you post your code please ?

"jaxp.debug" - may be it is a debug option? As far as I understand I use xerces build with debug info.
