I'm trying to convert an application to an applet--I need to read the user's home directory, and read files from the local disk. I've done similar things before, but now it's not working and I have no idea why. I get an AccessControlException when trying to read the home directory, just like I would if I had tried to run the applet from a web page without signing it first. I noticed this line had been added to my VM Options:
I removed it, but NetBeans put it back the next time I ran the applet. Is there any way to stop this? Having to open a command prompt and sign the applet just to test something would be really annoying (and I haven't even tried that yet).
