public abstract void setStream (String key, InputStream stream) throws IOException

Associates the specified stream with the specified key in this applet context. If the applet context previously contained a mapping for this key, the old value is replaced.

For security reasons, mapping of streams and keys exists for each codebase. In other words, applet from one codebase cannot access the streams created by an applet from a different codebase

key    key with which the specified value is to be associated.
stream    stream to be associated with the specified key. If this parameter is null, the specified key is removed in this applet context.

IOException    if the stream size exceeds a certain size limit. Size limit is decided by the implementor of this interface.
