Hey all, I'm trying to write my first SQL applet which connects to an Access database.  I'm just trying to get the framework of this to work so I can experiement with it later.  

I am using an ODBC bridge driver.  
Here is my error:

java.security.AccessControlException: access denied (java.lang.RuntimePermissi
 accessClassInPackage.sun.jdbc.odbc)
        at java.security.AccessControlContext.checkPermission(AccessControlCon
xt.java:270)
        at java.security.AccessController.checkPermission(AccessController.jav
401)
        at java.lang.SecurityManager.checkPermission(SecurityManager.java:542)
        at java.lang.SecurityManager.checkPackageAccess(SecurityManager.java:1

        at sun.applet.AppletPanel.run(AppletPanel.java:341)
        at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:536)



Here is my Applet: VERY SIMPLE -- Dont laugh:


/*
 * @(#)SqlTest.java 1.0 02/04/10
 *
 * You can modify the template of this file in the
 * directory ..\JCreator\Templates\Template_2\Project_Name.java
 *
 * You can also create your own project template by making a new
 * folder in the directory ..\JCreator\Template\. Use the other
 * templates as examples.

public class SqlTest extends JApplet {
     
     String fName = new String();
     String lName = new String();
     
     public void init() {
         
          String url = "jdbc:odbc:dsnTest";

               strSQL = con.createStatement();
               rs = strSQL.executeQuery(sqlString);
               
               
               while(rs.next())
               {
                   
                    fName = rs.getString("First Name");
                    lName = rs.getString("Last Name");
                    if(fName == null)
                         System.out.println("NULL!!");
                    if(lName == null)
                         System.out.println("Last name is null");
               }
                   
         
                             
          }
          //catch all exceptions
          catch(Exception e)
          {
               e.printStackTrace();
               return;
          }

         
     }

     public void paint(Graphics g)
     {
         
          g.drawString("First Name: " + fName, 50, 60);
         
         
     }
}

 The exception you are getting is thrown by the applet security manager and it does not have to do with errors in your code. Bare in mind that applets can only communicate with the database server that resides on the same machine where Applet was downloaded from. You cannot connect to any other server without first signing the Applet with a digital certificate.

  Hope it helps.
