Java is cross-platform that is why it does not provide any system-specific infromation like user name. As for the IP address it is:

InetAddress.getLocalHost().getHostAddress()

If you need to talk to Windows API you can probably do it using native calls.

Let me know if you need more info.

I might be wrong on the first account. To get the user's name try

Properties props = System.getProperties();
String username = props.getProperty("user.name");

This assumes that you are running a Java application which is allowed to read the system properties. Applets can read only some properties, the user.name is probably not one of them

Let me know if you still need the info on reading the text files.

BufferedReader reader = new BufferedReader(FileReader(filename));

String line;
while((line = reader.readLine()) != null)
{
  // Process the line
}

I doubt though an applet can read the user name.
