  Hi Jake,
  you should take a look at:
  It gives a detailed description about your problem.
  Bottom line is that you must sign your applet.

    Hiya all, I'm really hoping you can offer me a hand with this problem.

    I'm having a problem with SAXParserFactory causing a security exception in
    Microsoft Internet Explorer, using JDOM b7.

    here is the error string it spits out:

    ory.newInstance]: Unable to access system property:
     at com/ms/security/permissions/PropertyPermission.check
     at com/ms/security/PolicyEngine.shallowCheck (PolicyEngine.java)

     at shout3d/Shout3DPanel.run (Shout3DPanel.java)
     at java/lang/Thread.run (Thread.java)

    Using Microsoft's VM, this error results in a NullPointer
    Exception further down, causing the app to quit.

    in, it reports the error but continues to run.

    in, no errors are reported at all.

    Do you guys have any idea what's going on and why, and what I might be able
    to do to correct this?

    Any help is greatly appreciated...
