Is it true that an SIGNED applet running within a browser can open files and read/write to them on the local machine? Do you know of a demo where I can see an applet e.g. opening and Excel file and sending data to it?

CEHJ - We currently already have POI running within the Webstart environment. The question is specifically seeking an example of it running in a signed applet within a browser. Do you know of any such examples?

they work fine from here. Perhaps the server was down when you tried.

> Do you know of any such examples?

Thoses links contain examples of using both POI and JDBC to access Excel files.
