Welcome to the Ranch!

Firstly you would not send a textfield to a servlet, you would send the data (or text). Also, it doesn't matter that the end point is a servlet, you are just sending it across HTTP.

Now you just need to work out how to get a Swing application to send data across the web. Check out the HTTP Client in the Apache Commons libraries in http://jakarta.apache.org

David has answered your question.
Swing is desktop technology and servlets are server technology.
If they are to communicate it will have to be over HTTP.

The easiest way is to make your swing app a web client.
The easiest way to do that is to use the libraries in the link that David has already given you.
