By default an applet does not have permission to do what you want. It is only allowed to connect to the site that it was loaded from.

You must get the user to grant the applet additional permissions if you with to connect to other sites.

You could of course simply display the page in another browser window, instead of having the applet display it:

applet.getAppletContext().showDocument(url, "target");

I want to show the url on the same applet window as I want to trap the mouse event too.

What permissions are to be granted for connecting to other sites?


Thanx in Advance

I think its SocketPermission.
So do you want the page to display within the applet, or outside the applet?

Then you'll need to get the necessary priveliges from the user either by signing the applet and requesting them from the user, or changing their policy file.

getAppletContext().showDocument(url)
should work if called from within the applet.
