Web file association problem

My problem is this: I'm sending a file from a web server using a custom MIME type which causes a Java program to be invoked on the user's machine. The Java program has to process the information in the file and do some work based on that information. How do I find the file on the user's system once it has been sent from the server within the Java program? This is being done on an intranet, so only company employees will have the Java application on their machine to process the file.
Thanks in advance!

That file is in the browser's caching structure somewhere, more than likely, with a "name" like cache3C0FCA1F03B01F8.html. So probably the local Java program needs to search for that file by a content match in there?
