Yes, the browser does have to trust the certificate. When it first
downloads the applet, it asks the user if they want to trust it. And
there's a box which says "Always trust content from (whoever)". They
check the box and click OK and it's all done.

I used a self-signed certificate, since my application was for
internal company use.

Yes, but doesn't the browser have to trust that certificate? You could
self-sign, but don't you then need to distribute the signing cert? Or
does the browser just want it signed, it doesn't care by whom.
