I am trying to crawl a page using a web crawler. That page exists behinds a validator (struts), i.e. In order to get to the page, a button needs to be clicked. Is there anyway this can be bypassed so web crawler can get to the page without clicking this button?

<form name="loginForm" method="post" action="/check.do">
      <input type="hidden" name="forward" value="target_page">
       <input type="submit" name="org.apache.struts.taglib.html.CANCEL" value="Continue" onclick="bCancel=true;">

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
