How to turn off java 'security'

I'm currently attending a OS course and the excersize included the student using a java applet available online.
The problem was, since java is trying to be more secure these days it blocked that applet totally.

The fix

The fix is very simple, but java doesn't point you in the right direction.

Step one

First we open the java configure panel by searching for 'java'
Open java configure panel

Step two

Secondly we go into the Security tab and open Edit Site List...
The java configure panel

Step three

Now we simply add the website we want to allow (i added the root of the site since there was several java applets on different pages)
