File chooser and loading files as byte[] from an applet with the old plugin

Because I need to accommodate Mac users I may have to use the old plugin mechanism for my Swing applet, i.e., to forsake JNLP. Before I waste a lot of time down the rabbit hole, can someone kindly give me the low-down on file choosers and loading files files as byte[] (exactly as on disk, not as Image, audio or whatever): is it possible at all using the "old" Java plug-in?

Thanks a lot
