I have a web application which creates a report containing a listing of several text boxes whose values are a row of tab delimited data. The page also contains VBScript which runs after the page finishes loading. This script creates a specific text file on the users local file system and loops through all text boxes and writes the "row" of data from each text box as a row of data in the text file. The script then opens a COM connection to Microsoft MapPoint 2006 (has to already be loaded on client's computer) and uses COM calls to instruct MapPoint to import the text file and plot the addresses as pinpoints to the map. It also sets a few other settings in MapPoint through COM calls. I would like to change this process from using VBScript to a Java applet using a COM bridge. The current solution requires IE and several security settings in IE to be set in order to work. I'm hoping a Java applet would be easier for the users to allow run through their browser, and allow cross-browser support. The current HTML file containing the text boxes and vbscript is attached and shows the process that needs to be duplicated with the Java applet.
