hi all,
well if u would have seen my posts (two weeks before) i would have atleast asked a million times (not really!!) a way to get the username from WINDOWS SYSTEM and print it on jsp page!! well i have found atlast after loosing a few nights sleep!! well its thro a dll and use of vbscript as vbscript is clientz side we dont need to bother about using it in a jsp or html page as far as client uses IE and provided aktive x is not disabled!!!
its just about taking a dll and putting on the clients pc(ya well the client should accept this!!! well only who trust u!!!),
if u r interested then i can tell u, its thro 3rd party dll!!
cool finally!!
