I need to get about 70 documents from
www.genios.de . Every document has its own link and you have to login in to the WebSite to get access to the documents.
While I could to this manually I want to do this in Java just to learn to code better.
I found HtmlUnit, which seems to provide all the methods I need. My problem is, that I’m not able to get the TextFields for username/password and the button to login.
I tried different ways but none of them works. One attempt was the following code :
final WebClient webClient = new WebClient(); final HtmlPage page1 = webClient.getPage("http://www.genios.de"); final List<HtmlForm> forms = (List<HtmlForm>) page1.getForms(); final HtmlForm form = forms.get(0); HtmlInput usernameInput = form.getInputByName("loginBlock_username");
Exception in thread "main" com.gargoylesoftware.htmlunit.ElementNotFoundException: elementName=[input] attributeName=[name] attributeValue=[loginBlock_username] at com.gargoylesoftware.htmlunit.html.HtmlForm.getInputByName(HtmlForm.java:469) at GeniosLogin.main(GeniosLogin.java:26)
The id of the field is ‘loginBlock_username’. The actual name of the field you are trying to get is ‘loginBlock.username’
