I support a business application that uses an Applet to retrieve end-user's computer name at login time using Java Applet. Since Applet takes time to load, we need to find another way of retrieving coputer name. Our application consists of JSPs. I used
to get the computer name, it worked in my local environemt where the client and host were the same machine, but when I deployed it on the server, I get back the server name. I need to find a way how can I retrieve cleint's comuter name without using APPLET.
