    Default Pass variable from program to web page


    ive currently got a java swing program that has some text fields for a user to enter text into and then there is a button which when clicked opens up a web page which is displayed within a jeditorpane on a jframe (not the most elegant approach i know but it suits my purposes well enough).

    im trying to find out whether its possible to pass what has been entered by a user in the text fields to forms on the web page that opens. ive had a search and cant really seem to find a huge amount about this specific problem. id really appreciate some advice on whether it is possible and some help or a point in the direction to which i should be looking.

    thanks in advance,

    I would try to google "Mechanize for java"...

    Disclaimer: This idea has derived from knowledge of other languages. Mechanize or any equivalent may not be the best tool for use in java but it may be a good starting point for your search.

    The web page should use an applet which, when requested, gets the information required from the java program and passes it to a variable in your HTML/JavaScript.

    Java Code:
    import java.applet.*; 
    import java.awt.*; 
    public class appletParameter extends Applet {
      private String strDefault = "Hello! Java Applet.";
      public void paint(Graphics g) {
        String strParameter = this.getParameter("Message");
        if (strParameter == null)
        strParameter = strDefault;
        g.drawString(strParameter, 50, 25);
    HTML code:
    Java Code:
    <APPLET code="appletParameter.class" width="800" height="100">
    <PARAM name="message" value="Welcome in Passing parameter in java applet example.">
