Javascript to save a pdf to a network share

I need assistance with the java script necessary to perform the following:
I have a PDF that I need to add a button to which saves the completed pdf to a network share.
I need to have the script save the file to the share and create the filename using the following:
Document Name (constant) plus the associate's name (currently TextField1) plus the class date (currently TextField2) so it would look like this: "DRP Certification - John Smith - 10.28.2008.pdf".

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

1. I am pretty sure you cannot have javascript inside or outside the pdf save anything
2. I am pretty sure you also cannot access a share from a normal web page - WSH could but that is not a normal web page
3. if the form you are filling in is inside the pdf, make the form action go to the server with the data and return a new pdf with the following headers:



header("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" + "DRP Certification - John Smith - 10.28.2008.pdf"); // these strings should come from the request of course
header("Content-Length", length of the file);
header("ContentType: application/octet-stream");
 
write the file to output here

Are you looking for Java or JavaScript as they are distinct differences?

For java, these links may be helpful.

You may want to add some of JavaScript zones to the question to attract experts in those areas since this zone will pull the Java types like myself. :)

I was able to address this request by adding a button to the form to open a network share.  I could not have the file save automatically as requested but instructed the user to enter the appropriate file name in the Save As dialog.

I appreciate all the suggestions provided.
