Use ASP.NET forms authentication from Java

In our application we want to redirect the user to another expert system. To enter this expert system the user has to authenticate with his credentials. We have all the user information on our end and it seems such a simple thing to achieve. This link: Using Web Services in ASP.NET AJAX gives much info on how to achieve this by using POST or GET. Since GET uses an URL to authenticate this would seem the easy way but also the one with more security risks. The URL can be tampered with. I already started with java code to try to use the POST route but then realized this would never work from the Mendix cloud since this code needs to be executed on the client side and not on the server. What would be the best route to try to achieve the authentication and redirecting to this website? Is it indeed true that the POST route will never work? Or should I create a widget since it seems from this link: Using Forms Authentication with Microsoft Ajax that javascript can be used to authenticate? For time sake we now use the GET route and reset the password after each login to the other website. Not the most elegant way. Anybody a suggestion (or better, did anybody already solved the same problem)? Regards, Ronald
