I think there must be a typo with the annotation file's URL, since the
HTTP error code 403 indicates that the annotation file's URL didn't
return a document. You need to verify that you've provided an absolute
URL for the annotations.txt file in the href attribute, and it is
actually retrievable if you paste it in to a web browser.
let me know if this doesn't work and I'll take a closer look ...
ps. You can check what arguments are actually being passed to jalview by
downloading the JNLP file returned from the launchApp url and looking
for the command line argument tags at the end of the XML document.
