    Unhappy Interfacing with online JAVA application

    Hi,
    At my work, there is a JAVA application running, which can be accessed by IE only. I know it;s a java application, because once i open it, and i scroll over the links, the status bar shows hard to understand string which starts with java. I do a lot of repeatative work in it, and i was was wondering if it could be automated.
    I don;t have access to it;s coding and i don;t know names of any fields (which i hope can be retrieved by "something"). The fields can be anywhere from checkboxes to textbox to filesave dialog box (where a file is stored and needs to be opened using another specific application).
    I am unfamiliar with java, so i was hoping it can be done using the language i sort of know, VBA.
    My question is can someone please provide me a direction on how i shuold go about doing this with minimum effort?
    This project;s success can save me TONS of time at work!!
    Any response is appreciated, THanks

    I know it;s a java application, because once i open it, and i scroll over the links, the status bar shows hard to understand string which starts with java.

    It starts with "java", but does the string continue with "script:"?

    sorry about not giving complete information
    yes, it continues with javascript
    for example,
    fields with links in it: javascript:// appears in the statusbar
    nothing appears for fields with editable textboxes and checkboxes

    OK - so what you are looking at is a web page with associated code written in JavaScript.

    Automating your interaction with this page is not a trivial undertaking so unless you are proficient in some language or other it may be a case of hiring someone to do this. The choice of language would be an implementation detail, but one point I would make is that JavaScript is not the same language as Java (which is the subject of these forums).
