Hi,
Can anyone help me solve the following problem:
I need to connect to a website, login using a username and password, and then perform a number of actions on the website - e.g. navigate to a page & post some information. How do I do this using Java classes?
Stephen

Check out HttpUnit
Here's a short description of it:


The normal way to access web sites is via a browser; however, there are times when it is desirable to bypass the browser and access a site from a program, including:
* automated web site testing
* using a web-site as part of a distributed application
HttpUnit makes this easy. Written in Java, HttpUnit emulates the relevant portions of browser behavior, including form submission, basic http authentication, cookies and automatic page redirection, and allows Java test code to examine returned pages as text, an XML DOM, or containers of forms, tables, and links.


hope that helps!
