How to retrieve the URL in a browser window

Hi folks, what I need to do is to retrieve the url on the focused window of the browser being used by the user. So for example if the user has a Firefox opened with several tabs, I want to access the url on the one in focus.

If anyone have anyway on how to achieve that I would be much appreciated.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Java is the wrong tool for that - you need native code that iterates all windows on the box. C# would be better (assuming Windows being used)

Yep, I know that C# or C++ would be ideal, but I wanted to know if there was any way to do it in Java, since the program I'm writing is in Java...

Any help would be much appreciated.
You could use JNA. You'd need to get the native code from another topic area, involving native Windows programming
