Need to post form data from java and proceed to a website
Posted on 2006-06-20
We have a site developed using struts. We are adding a payment gateway to it, however, my problem is this.
We need to post data to this site then proceed to this site for the customer to enter their credit card information and when successfully completed they are returned to our website. We sell online learning so the real issue is if they saw the return URL they could use this and get enrolled in classes without actually paying for them.
I need to know how to post form data to another website but have it hidden from the user. I can post from Java that's not the issue and retrieve the response, the issue is I need to go to the website with the posted data and have the customer interact with the site before returning to our site. I want it hidden and would prefer to do it using Java.
I may not have explained this correctly but hopefully, you get the idea.
A page that displays hidden text boxes would allow a user to see the return URL.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
