Send keystrokes to iframe
So here's the basic concept of what my manager wants implemented for a secure site we have, and I'm not sure where to start other than a Java applet that runs in the browser:
User clicks a link to "Management Center," which is a 3rd party webapp that uses different credentials and security than our portal page. We want the client to be automatically logged into the Management Center when they click that link.
My thought is this: opens a new page, with an iframe that has the Management Center in it and a banner above the iframe (ala Google Images) that has a "return to portal" link or something. That page would run a (hopefully) transparent/unobtrusive Java applet, emulate keystrokes to the username and password text boxes in the iframe, and log the client in.
Is it possible? Is it possible to send keystrokes to an iframe from a browser. I am trying desperately to avoid installing anything on the clients machine.
