Hello Friends,
I have to develop an application in Java which takes html page as an input, parse its and changes its "href" attribute of the anchor tag. and "action" attribute of form tag. Is there any inbuild support to do that, or any suggestion how should i proceed.
Thanks in advance

You probably want to look at the HTMLEditorKit class.
The JDK1.4 has alot of additional support for HTML manipulation.
