    Default getCodeBase returns null for local applets as of 7u25

    From release notes at: Java? SE Development Kit 7 Update 25 Release Notes
    Local Applets return NULL for codebase
    Beginning with JDK 7u25, an applet's getCodeBase() method will return NULL when the applet is running from the local file system.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Default Re: getCodeBase returns null for local applets as of 7u25

    And getDocumentBase() returns null for local applets as of 7u40. Both are bugs on the part of Oracle, discussed in great detail here:

    The only way this is going to get resolved is if you report a Java bug citing that article.
