java.policy file

P: n/a
Where (aka what directory) do you put a java.policy file on a website
for a particular applet???

There are presently no java.policy files on the web server.

You can't put a policy file for an applet on the webserver because
every user has a local installation of the JRE which he uses (or his
browser) to execute the servlet. Your webserver has nothing to do with
this!

You could provide a java.polocy file for download, but every user of
your applet would have to download that file and put it in his local
java directory. Not a good idea...

downloading a policy file via the webbrowser?
