I have a dilemma. I am trying to program an applet for my website that will access my sftp server and I am starting to loose faith. I am building a swing user interface and that is going ok, but I am at the moment really struggling with the file permissions for the users local area. I have written my own certificate and I know it works because I tested it on a basic applet. But now I can't get the applet inside to work right. I have two classes, one main one and one that is accessed by the initial one, everytime I run my applet I get a grey screen where the applet should be. I am using swing.
In the greater scheme of things I know creating this app can be done but I am wondering if It can be done with just the standard java api. Any online resources anyone can point me in the direction of would be helpful. Any help appreciated.
