      <testcase>
      import java.io.*;
      import java.util.*;
      import javax.tools.*;

      }

      public class Foo {
        public static void main(String... arg) throws IOException {
            System.setSecurityManager(new SManager());
            JavaCompiler javac = ToolProvider.getSystemJavaCompiler();
            StandardJavaFileManager javaFileManager =
      javac.getStandardFileManager(null,null,null);
        }
      }

      </testcase>

      <output>
      G:\trails>java Foo
      javax.tools.ToolProvider: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com/sun/tools/javac/api/JavacTool; access denied (java.util.
      PropertyPermission sun.tools.ToolProvider read)
      javax.tools.ToolProvider: java.security.AccessControlException: access denied (java.util.PropertyPermission java.home re
      ad); access denied (java.util.PropertyPermission sun.tools.ToolProvider read)
      javax.tools.ToolProvider: Lazy.compilerClass == null; access denied (java.util.PropertyPermission sun.tools.ToolProvider
       read)
      Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException
