I have swing application, When user clicks a menu item, I would like
to open the browser and post some data using post method.
User needs to see the web page in IE.
Is there any mechnaism to do this one? I understand that we can easily do
this using query string, but I am intrested only using post method because
my data contain sensitive information

As far as I know, you can't. Just like you can't send POST data to a URL when directly opening that URL in any browser.
