multiple form filling bot (for legit use)

by prestonascott / May 3, 2009 11:50 PM PDT

I have a client that needs a 'bot' (for lack of better terms) that he can have insurance agents fill information into while on the phone with a customer, we want the agent to then be able to hit submit and the program will open up 10 separate websites, log in to each, and fill out 3-4 web forms on each site to get the agent to the point where the resulting quote is there on each of the 10 separate pages.

It has to be:
- Able to select proper values from drop-down menus
- Able to select proper check boxes.
- Able to select proper radio buttons.
- Able to insert data into text fields.

The form that the bot is filling out is a multi-step form, meaning that the bot has to click "Next" to continue, about 5-7 steps.

DOES ANYONE HAVE SOME SOURCE CODE THEY CAN REFER ME TO SO I CAN GET STARTED ON THIS?
I am familiar with php, asp, and vb
thanks

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
