> Java applets are given fewer security privileges than stand alone applications by default.
 When trying to run an Axis2 client from a java applet, it may not have all of the privileges
required by some of the calls in the Axis2 code, causing SecurityExceptions to be thrown.
 Examples of these calls are System.getProperty() and File.listFiles().
> A suggested fix would be to enclose these calls in try/catch(SecurityException) blocks,
and assign default values to the variables which failed to be set.
> Known affected files:
> Adding the try/catch blocks here allowed the applet to start and function correctly.
 However, the problem probably exists in other locations in the code too.  I was only using
limited functionality (no additional modules or databinding). Since applets cannot read files
from the file system, I'm unsure how this affects other axis2 functionality.
