Question 14:

Fire Hall is building a corporate Intranet and wants its employees to access payroll information via the Internet. They are implementing the solution via applets for richer GUI capabilities. The view 401(k) applet requires a Java 1.4 Plug in as well as read permission to read cached data from a temporary directory on the host where it's being executed. Is the applet technology viable for this application?

 

The applet technology is not viable because the sandbox model prevents them from reading or writing to the host where they are executed.

The applet technology is a viable solution because the security policy of the Java 2 Platform is totally flexible.
