    Default Hosting an Applet on a website which reads a textfile

    I wrote up a code of an Applet which needs to read in from a text file. I used this line to make the program read the text file:

    BufferedReader input = new BufferedReader(new FileReader("test.txt"));

    Now the code works fine in Eclipse and I have it so the .class and .java files are in the same folder. The test.txt file is also in the same folder with everything else. My problem is that when I try to host this Applet up, it doesn't read the text file at all. I put the html, class, java, and text files all in the public_html folder. How can I make the applet read from the text file while being hosted? Thanks

    Put the text file on the server, not on the remote.

    If the file is in the jar you can get it using ClassLoader.getResourceAsStream(). If it is on the server you can use URLConnection.getContent().

    I did put it on the server

    Edit: Would URLConnection.getContent() go inside the bufferedreader?

    Edit: Nevermind I got it to work! Thank you so much.
