Hi.. I need to know how can i read the values from a HTML page using a java program. I need my java program to hold these values read from the page and pass it on to an XML file which in read these string of values and display them after breaking them.
For Eg:
i have an html form which takes input as:

Name: July
Age:34
Gender: F

I want my java program to read this html form and form a string which is similar to : July34F and pass this string to an XML file which in turn will display the content as and store the same:

Name: July
Age:34
Gender: F

Any suggestions...?

You probably need to have a look on the web programming tools like servlet, jsp.

I'd use a library like HtmlUnit or jWebUnit for this.
