All,

I am in need of writing java application which logs into website.

The website which i want to log in.

i have attached the login screenshot , login html , login javascript and the javacode which i am using.

when i execute the java code , it gives me 200 http response but does not log into the website.

important thing to note is the 'password' in the login page is as part of the javascript and not part of the login form. I have hardcoded to generate this attribute to make it available as part of the post request.

i have also tried loggin using chrome poster ....When i try to post the request via chrome poster to the action url specified in the login form of login.html , i am not able to login to the site.

can anyone guide me as to what am i missing ?
how to set password filed which is available in javascript , is my hard coding in login.java correct?
Is it feasible to automate this login process using java.

any suggestions are greatly welcomed....hoping to have some guidance.

Please let me know if i need to provide further details.

If this was my problem I'd use the HtmlUnit library for this. Much easier than coding it all yourself.

Welcome to the Ranch

I added code tags to your post. Always use them (you can even change them to format JS). Doesn't it look better I had to break some of the long lines. I am not sure how to format the HTML, however.

Aim;

Login to the citrix portal shown in the above screenshot successfully.

Problem:

Password field is not available in the login form [index.html].

Javascript function[ns_showpwd()] is being used in the index.html at the place of password field.

This javascript function has the html code for generating the password field [code is attached in the begining of the thread].

When i look at the view source of index.html , the html content of ns_showpwd() is not loaded in the page, page is designed that way .

Error:

With my current htmlunit program i am getting below error as mycode is not finding the passwd field as it is not available in [index.html]

Exception in thread "main" com.gargoylesoftware.htmlunit.ElementNotFoundException: elementName=[input] attributeName=[name] attributeValue=[passwd]
at com.gargoylesoftware.htmlunit.html.HtmlForm.getInputByName(HtmlForm.java:412)
at com.auto.login.JiraLogin.logIn(JiraLogin.java:74)
at com.auto.login.JiraLogin.main(JiraLogin.java:52)

Question

How do i read the password field which is in the javascript using htmlunit , so that i can click and log in to the portal.

Attaching my current htmlunit code for reference.


Please help guide me as to how we can retrieve passwd field .

Oh, I thought the code you posted yesterday was the solution, since there wasn't any question on it. What does or does it not do? What's still missing?
