I have an asp.net application which someone else created and I am trying to fix.

At some point the code writes out to the browser some javascript code that pops up a window.  It is basically just a redirect to another page.  The redirect points to the java page.  When this happens, I get a popup for a username and password.  I would like to pass the username and password in the url instead.  Is this possible?  The popup dialogue seems like it is standard.  I

Most Probably you may have to change the javascript code that produces the pop up window.

Alternatively
you can try Basic authentication syntax in url  (if this is the case)
Something like  http://username:password@theserver/gen.ext
you may have to replace  http: with https:

or try with HTTPClient
here is a link with the relative info:http://hc.apache.org/httpclient-3.x/tutorial.html

Unfortunately, basic authentication URL's do not work in IE without client side changes:

You can check the headers being sent between the browser and the server to find out which URL triggers basic authentication. I recommend livehttpheaders for firefox (http://livehttpheaders.mozdev.org/). Look for a HTTP/1.x 401 header. Once you know which URL triggers authentication, reconfigure the webserver to remove authentication.
