    Hmmm....
    Applet is a quite limited app unless it is signed. It has it's own tools to cooperate with browser (openDocument etc)
    (jnlp based applet) is based on JNLP and there are some different tools to cooperate with browser some like BasicService etc
    JWS app as limited as an applet... In some way the difference is online or offline running ability...
    Report if that helped )

    What are the steps to sign an applet to access local files (read or write). My applet runs on Applet Viwer in NetBeans 6.5. but gives "denied access permission read" using in an HTML format on IE 6 browser.

    I appreciate all the helps to make this applet signing works. Ron.

    well... to sign applet you should use keytool and jarsigner.
    It is quite easy if you know instructions
    here you go

    I had some genuine difference like Applet runs under the control of a browser, whereas an application runs as stand-alone, with the support of a virtual machine. Second thing applet is subjected to more tight security restrictions in terms of file and network access, whereas an application can have free over these resources.

    An Applet is a Java program running inside the browser that may or may not be talking to a server.

    A Web app is generally a Javascript front end (though Flash and others are often used) which talks to a server on which the application (whether Java, PHP, C#, whatever) resides.
