Getting the actual password requires finding (another)
security hole in Windows.
Getting the user name is the user.name property.
Look up the Javadocs for System.getProperty().
If you're looking for single sign on kinds of capabilities,
there are several good books on Java security. It will
require additional non-Java code on the Windows side.
Thanks,
Joe

You can get the user name by -

Moreover, the following code should list all the system properties for you.

Let me know if it helps.
