looking for library that can read text from screen and select tick boxes in browser

Hi -

I want to write a little piece of software to use with Facebook games, as gifting/accepting takes ages for some games.
So, this need to be able to click buttons (to accept), give gifts (look for name, tick radio box next to name) and read text (to get names from person gifting)
I can talk a little RegEx, enough Swing etc. to get that all working...but I am not sure what I can use to read text, check boxes etc. from screen.

Would you have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

Jawine

JWebUnit (and HtmlUnit, on which it is based) is a very capable library for programmatic web access.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
