I'm writing a Java program to automatically load webpages content. If need go to the next page, the action is taken from javascript using this function:



Is there any way to mimic user's click on the button and invoke Javascript function by using Java? So that I can read the content from pages to pages.

Thanks

There are testing tools that can do this kind of thing: HttpUnit and related software. Have a look at HttpUnit and let us know how you make out.
