1. is this doable?
Yes, anything that you can do in your browser (in terms of filling and submitting the forms) can also be done programmatically from Java.
2. How difficult is this?
Not much magic, really. A few dozen lines of code will do it. Search for "HttpURLConnection" in the Sockets and Internet Protocols forum.
