Are there any error messages in the browser's java console?

BTW The APPLET tag's code= attribute refers to a class not a file.
Try removing the .class

yea here is what im getting sorry didnt know you could check.

if you run an applet once via a browser, the browser will remember your applet, and will output what it has in its memory instead of the new version of the applet. therefore, you need to clean your browser's memory to run the new version of your applet if you've changed it. otherwise, everything seems to be fine. one more thought: are you sure you've saved your html file with an html suffix?

access denied (java.io.FilePermission grandIcon.jpg read)

This error says that the applet was denied permission to read a file from the local system.
Unsigned applets loaded from a server are NOT allowed to read files from the local system.

You should put ALL the files the applet needs into a jar file on the server, reference that jar file in the <APPLET tag's archive= attribute and use the getResource() method to get a URL to read the file from the jar file.

I compiled the code and ran it. I got a frame with three tabs, no pictures... I missed the FilePermission error posted here, no error when I compiled/ran the code. my bad!

This is so frustrating hahah. Yea I'm running it from my home computer, and I've tested it on others, and it does roughly the same thing. Any other ideas, NormR1 my professor is very strict when it comes to using methods that are not in the book so unfortunately I can't do that. I think it has something to do with the policy info on my computer but I tried changing it and I don't think it helped.

How are you executing the applet?
Where are all the files? Are they all local, no server?
How do you load the html into the browser?

Your code works for me for the few images I changed from yours to mine:

When i debug the applet using eclipse or jgrasp it automatically creates a html file for me, I click on this html file which opens either firefox, chrome, or internet explorer. Tested them all.

The files are all stored locally. It pretty much looks like its hanging. Thanks for your help btw.

looks like its hanging

Where/when does the: java.security.AccessControlException: access denied (java.io.FilePermission grandIcon.jpg read)
happen?
This exception shouldn't happen for all local files.

Add lots of printlns to your code to show where the execution flow goes. If it is hanging, then the place it is hanging will be after the last print out and before the next one that didn't print.

So I added teh printlns but im not sure how to see them other then when i run them via jgrasp applet viewer or eclipse. In the browser how would i see them. I think the problem is that as soon as it tries to load the first image it throws the exception, so it hangs because of that. Do I have to sign it or something. It's wierd because I have a few other peoples from my class, and there's all work fine.

I have added a bunch of printlns but I dont know how to see them other than in the jgrasp console. In the browser they dont display. I believe the reason its hanging is because of the fact that its throwing an exception on the first image it tries to load. Very strange indeed. I have a few other people assignments that have virtually the same thing, but theres loads. Any clue why? Maybe the digital signature? O man this is a headaache.

It should not throw an AccessControlException for local files.
I'm confused by that.

You do understand that you must tell us exactly what is happening!!
You can't assume something or think that all errors are the same.

One problem I have believing you is that the line number in the error message:
at FamilyTreeTabbedPane.init(FamilyTreeTabbedPane.java:25)
line 25 is NOT where the image is being read in the code you posted which shows the first ImageIcon being called at line 20.
That means you have made changes between what you posted and when you got the error.

Im very sorry I didn't realize that I was wrong and that I meant to post this one. So sorry.

That doesn't change that fact that locally executed applets should not get AccessControlException.

Do you have a .java.policy file in this folder: C:\Users\Thomas
Have you used the policytool to make any changes to permissions?

Edited 5 Years Ago by NormR1: n/a

Nope I dont believe that I do. I'm at school right now so I cant check but I know there is a policy file in the bin folder of eclipse that grants permissions to everything, which i assume is for the appletviewer. And no i have not used the policytool. I have found a solution though. It circumvents reading from im assuming the stream, by getting the base code of the image initially so that it never actually pulls the image from its location.

I'm using

"anImageIconHere"= new ImageIcon(getImage(getCodeBase(), "siblings.jpg"));

to set the image to the imageicon and then i use the imageicon as the parameter rather than creating it t and setting it when the method is called

I think your solution works because getCodeBase returns the URL the applet was loaded from (ie the server), so your getImage downloads the image file from that location, thus not needing local file access or any special permissions. I believe this is the "correct" way to do it anyway, rather than fiddling with policy files on every machine that might run this applet.

it never actually pulls the image from its location.

It must ultimately read the file from the local system. If it were this easy to bypass the security requirements, there really is not any security at all.

Hi Norm. Why do you say "It must ultimately read the file from the local system"?
I'm assuming the image files are in the same place (on the server) as the applet itself, so getImage(getCodeBase(), "someFile.jpg") will read the image from wherever the applet was loaded from, which is allowed by standard applet security... or have I missed the point somewhere?

I didn't think there was a server involved with this problem. I thought that All the files were on the OP's local disk. Hence my remark that all the files were being read from the local disk.
I wasn't thinking about getting files from a server. The getCodeBase() should work as you say.

Earlier I asked: Where are all the files? Are they all local, no server?
The OP's answer: The files are all stored locally.

There was no mention of a server, so I assumed that all the files are local.

Strange!!?? Need a webcam to look over the OPs shoulder and see what he is doing.

Edited 5 Years Ago by NormR1: n/a

OK...
When a browser loads an applet from the local file system then the machine in question is both client and server... I think what's happening here is that when viewing the applet in a browser, even if the applet is loaded from the local file system, the security rules still apply - ie the applet can only load files from the codeBase (the URL where the applet was loaded from). Now maybe the codeBase happens to be on the local machine, but accessing via codeBase doesn't count as a "local file access".
What say you?

The program works for me. I'll try hiding my .java.policy file and see.

gssing via codeBase doesn't count as a "local file access"

That was what prompted my comment about there being no security if its that easy to read from the local system. More FM.

This code: tabPane.addTab("Parents",new ImageIcon( "images/right.gif"),parentTab());
works without my .java.policy file in the C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\ folder.

left.gif was loaded using: getImage(getCodeBase(), "images/left.gif"))

Edited 5 Years Ago by NormR1: n/a

Assuming I'm right, you can only read from (parts of) the browser's local file system if the applet was loaded from that local file system in the first place - so it doesn't give you access to anyone else's file systems.
What's FM?

Are you able to get the Exception?

FM= F****** magic


!!!!
Moved my testing code to a virgin folder and now get the exception. I thought I had hidden my .java.policy file, but I guess not.

Will take a look after breakfast.

Edited 5 Years Ago by NormR1: New data

I haven't been running the code here, so no Exceptions! But my guess is that if you move one of those files to a different directory (so it's not in the codeBase) without a security policy you won't be able to access it.
Thanks for "FM" BTW, I'm adding that to my vocabulary!

Just noticed this in the sun docs re unsigned applets

They that are loaded from the local file system (from a directory in the user's CLASSPATH) have none of the restrictions that applets loaded over the network do.

So it seems I was wrong for applets loaded from a local directory that is in the classpath. This may be adding to the confusion when test cases are being run.

Seems like we're going to learn something with this one. Just ran some tests with different browsers: All failed with the security exception, EXCEPT for Firefox 4.0.1
It was able to read the file!!??

More tests later.

Here's my test program. getImage() is able to read from the local disk. The other classes and methods I've tried so far get the exception.
