Java URL Object and client-side translation

I have a requirement to parse the content of an Intranet page via a server process. However, the Intranet page uses vast amounts of JavaScript, XML and the MS Core Services process to translate the pages. So, my dilemma is, how do I get the Java process via the URL object to read the actual content AFTER it has been parsed inline, rather than return back just the Javascript code that is performing the translation.....???

To do this, you'd need a complete implementation of a JavaScript-enabled, DOM-based (and I don't even know what MS Core Services are) browser in Java -- or at least, a browser that you could call as a subprocess and which would return the rendered HTML to you in some form. There's definitely nothing like this in the J2SE, but it's possible a third-party tool might do the trick. The Jazilla project might be your best bet.
