    Default Read a string from a txt file

    Hi, I want to read a string from a txt file.
    The program returns error at run time from the Java's security class.
    Java Code:
    try {
    FileInputStream fis = new FileInputStream("README.TXT");
    int n;
    while ((n = fis.available()) > 0) {
    byte[] b = new byte[n];
    int result =;
    if (result == -1) break;
    String s = new String(b);
    } // End while
    } // End try
    catch (IOException e) {System.err.println(e);}

    Applet's don't have permission to read files from the client computer. You can either include the file in the jar of the applet, and then load the file using ClassLoader's getResource... methods. Or you can put the file on the same server as the jar, and then access it remotely (I'm not too familiar with J2SE but I think you create a Url object or something).
