What API can I use to write in Windows Registry or property file? There is java.util.properties, still I feel this is not what I need. I wanted to write on the Clients side and not on the Server side. I wanted this because I wanted to write a workstation ID on the client, so I would know that the workstation is valid to enter my site. Note that this is not a user restriction but rather a hardware restriction.
you can reach me thru this email for a more clarifications on the problem.

What would you do if the machine was a non-windows machine such as UNIX, MAC, SUN, etc?

Assuming security is not an issue, setting a cookie file on the client machine seems like the best-known approach to accompishing this.
Writing to the registry is of course platform-specific, and while there may be a Java API to do this, you'd just have to google around to find someone's API.

but what if the user has disabled the cookie on his/her browser?
but assuming that the client is a windows platform, what could be the possible solution?
thanks
