I'd like to have an applet that would be able to read the username environment variable. I know that this is prohibited by default, but I'm wondering if it's possible with a signed applet?

Thanks.

Couldn't say for sure, but signed applet is probably the way to go. Probably wouldn't take long to experiment (via the non-sandboxed appletviewer tool, if that is still shipped in the dev kit) if it can do System.getenv(String var) and get back the right value.
