or you do it the right way: File.separator

Don't do it this way.

if you are using mozilla  i assume that you are using a applet. applets
cannot write anywhere. the applet needs permission, therefore you will
have to look at signing your applet or using access policies.

I do understand that applet cannot write into a file. But, as you
said if i give permission then it will. but, my question  is how can
i put some limitation. right now i am saying grant { permission
java.security.AllPermission; }; and this is able to write. But as you
can tell that this is very risky.... so, now i want to use put some
codebase of something like that. I am not much familer with the
security.. but if you do. pleaes let me know. Once Again, thanks you
very much for your help.

i think you define the io in the grant line.

grant permission io.file or something. i was only interested in
granting to a socket io. sorry for long delay, i have been away.

have you found the answer yet?

i did a quick search on google


and heres your line of interest from the first result

grant signedBy "Duke" {
permission java.io.FilePermission "/tmp/*", "read,write";

no rudeness intended, but it wasnt that hard.

I am sure substituting "/tmp/*" with "*" will work.
