Apple Sandboxing Unnecessarily Prevents Applet Filesystem Access (Doc ID 1639766.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 05, 2016

Applies to:

Java SE JDK and JRE - Version 7 and later
Apple Mac OS X (Intel) (64-bit)

Symptoms

In Safari 6.1 and 7, the sandbox is preventing filesystem browsing from a Java applet.  When browsing the filesystem using a Java FileDialog launched from an applet, the filesystem appears to contain no files.  This problem is not present when browsing via a Flash uploader.
