Is it possible to link to a site and prepopulate fields on their home page without passing parameters.
Our website is linking to a business partner's website and would like to pass information to their home page and prepopulate certain fields.
They cannot allocate resource to amend their site to accept parameters.

I have seen this done with some web sites and I think that they did this using java applets. I just wondered if anybody had done something similar with applets and could point me to any useful documentation.

You could use java.net.URLConnection to download the parameters remotely, but you'd either have to connect back to the server the applet was downloaded from or digitally sign the applet.
