I've recently noticed that whenever my signed applet performs any kind of communication, it is described in the java plug-in console, e.g.
network: Connecting http://abcdefg.com.........
this is printed each time I use URLConnection class
the thing is that I'd like to keep my backend server URLs hidden and not visible to the customers using my applet, how can I disable these lines or hide them ?
I know that the customer can easily install a sniffer and see the URL I'm accessing but that doesn't bother me because this is a high level customer who can achieve such things...
I've tried setting during runtime, just before accessing the URL, the system parameter javaplugin.trace and also javaplugin.trace as described at http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/guide/plugin/developer_guide/tracing_logging.html
however, they do not change anything and the same lines keep being printed out...
