Web tier: servlets, JSP, Web frameworks: I need an HTML data input robot .. to handle Store updatation !

  1. Hi ,
    I am Arthur Rodricks.
    I am looking for a Robot, that can
    copy data from my SQL server and paste it onto specific
    textfields on a web page.

    Can someone help me finding the link to such an application.

    Thanking you in anticipation.
    Arthur Rodricks.
  2. Take a look at HttpUnit (http://httpunit.sourceforge.net/). I think you'll be able to accomplish what you are asking with the help of HttpUnit API.

    Regards
  3. Thanks for the information about the httpunit...

    Can you suggest me a ready downloadable software
    that can automate this procedure for me.

    The httpunit is a bit complicated with a lot of
    source code files to studied up !

    By the way ,
    thanks for the information again,
    waiting for your reply,
    Arthur Rodricks

  4. Arthur,

       Unfortunately I am not aware of an off-the-shelf software package that does what you are looking for. Another possibility is to see what perl modules are available for this kind of task. I am fairly certain the perl community has faced this problem and solved it.

       Sorry, I am not being of much help here.

    Regards
  5. If you are trying to test throughput, just write an SQL select statement which happens to send a URL post to your server. something like
    select 'http://myserver:7001/Command=update&companyid= ' + company.CompanyID FROM company
