Java Question

Communicate with web pages

I want to create an application that uses a shipping calculator on an external web page (http://www.bring.no/page?id=4994) to calculate a shipping.

The scenario will be that a user will fill out the fields, then he will have to submit, which will use the page's shipping calculator, then get the value (the shipping fee).

So basically what I want to make is a swing application that looks similar to the existing shipping calculator, pass arguments to it, and retrieve the result.

I have no idea how to do this. So any tips or hints would be highly appreciated! :)


Look at Apache HttpClient for communicating with websites and webservices from your Java Swing application.

You have to do an HTTP POST with the field names on the web page.
