Hi,

Applets are not the best way to write to files, because they have security restrictions on a system. The Java Virtual Machine(JVM) has got a 'sandbox' model for Applets, they can't access any system resources, like writing files, etc.

Better way to do this task is to use Java Swing in a Java Application. Use the Java Swing Tutorial on Sun's website at http://java.sun.com

Regards,

Warturtle

I just wanted to get the file name through applet. I wanted my program to be user friendly.

You can have a user-friendly interface through Swing/ AWT as well. But if you're not willing to do it by anything other than an Applet, then your Applet needs to be signed in order to access files, etc, otherwise I guess that it will throw a SecurityException.

Have a look at: http://www.mindprod.com/jgloss/signedapplets.html
