I am learning java, and i cant watch my creations in browser, because security setting block them. How to allow only my java programs through the security setting?

Are you asking about running Java applets in your browser? Applets that aren't hosted on a web page, but accessed through file:// URLs?

I'm not a Java developer, but here's how I would try to configure this (assuming you are using the OpenJDK 1.7/IcedTea):

1) From the applications menu, start "IcedTea-Web Control Panel"

2) Click on "Extended applet security" at the bottom left

3) Click "Add new row" below "User definitions"

4) In the "Action" column, select "A - Always trust this..." from the dropdown

5) In the "Document-base" and "Code-base" columns, double-click to enter their respective values, then paste as follows, where "claus" is replaced by your username:


6) Click "OK".

I would recommend to disable this and sign your applets instead, if possible.
