Which browser are you using? Java version? And what error
message are you seeing?
I haven't used BioJava in an applet for a while now, but at
one point I successfully ran a DAS client in an applet, running
on Java plugin 1.3 in Mozilla (under Linux). I don't think I
had any security issues unless you tried to communicate with
servers other than the machine from which the applet was loaded.
AlphabetManager.xml is loaded from the biojava.jar file using
a getResourceAsStream() call. I thought this was always a legal
thing for an applet to do -- anyone else know better?
