My problem: i need to get the client's "user name" by using javascript , is it possible???
The problem is in my jsp page if i say<%=System.getProperty("user.name");%>
it gives me the root user name, but what i need is the username of the client (if a person opens my jsp page then automatically his user name(same as that which he used to logon to SYSTEM )should popup in other words i just need a javascript function which does this???!!! if anyone knows this then please tell me ! any alternative ideas(some tricks within jsp or servlets) is also welcome!
