    Default Can java interact with Firefox and recognise a TextField?

    My main question would be: can a java application interact with an application like "Firefox" and recognise a TextField on a page and make the application think its a JTextField? And if so how?

    Your question is too abstract for a direct answer. Can you give a little more detail of what you are trying to achieve? Is your Java application trying to read the values typed on an HTML TextField? Is it an applet, or a standalone application?
    make the application think its a JTextField
    Can you elaborate this?

    It could read the HTML code of a page, identify text fields, and then do HTTP post requests.
