Which API is it ?
If it is something using Java/Flash, it's nearly impossible to connect those, it's only doable with "real" html (get/post/...).

Hi Sam028,

You are right its Java flash based API.
Do you mean that its still possible when HTML is used to connect? Can you kindly provide some lead to start with?

Thank you
