Sun Java System Application Server Enterprise Edition 8.2 Troubleshooting Guide

Solution

Add the permission in client.policy (for the application client), or in server.policy (for EJB/web modules) for the application that needs to set the property. By default, applications only have “read” permission for properties.

For example, to grant read/write permission for all the files in the codebase directory, add or append the following to client.policy or server.policy:

grant codeBase "file:/.../build/sparc_SunOS/sec/-" {
   permission java.util.PropertyPermission "*", "read,write";
 };
