I want to develop an executable java program that, when opened, floats over a web-page; a GUI with tabs combo boxes and the like. The purpose of this program is to fill a webpage TEXT-BOX OR MESSAGE-BOX with any information you want, similiar to autofill in Google Chrome.
I'll figure out how to hammer out the code in the coming days, but what I need from you, within the community, is how to implement this program. The program, when launched, will will be a small gui window which will allow you to append data from what's displayed in your program window directly into a webpage textbox you select, with just a button click, or similar event.
My next question is how do I encompass a small database (used for storing and retrieving data)within my little java coded executable? The user won't have to physically link to Access, Exel and the like. He or she would install my program and the data storage and manipulation would be handled entirely by my program (executable).
If you have developed similar algorithms for similar ideas, please let me know - I would appreciate it.
That is a huge undertaking you're suggesting here. Communication with other applications can be tricky. Further you're describing a concept and not really a design/implementation/something concrete. You'll need to decide which browsers to support, how to interact with those applications, have a general design and probably a proof of concept. Without those I find it unlikely that you'll get much support from the community.
About the database, what do you need? And do you really need a database? Can't a simple file be enough?
