Thanks for the replies so far!
I think the php curl option is the best, im just not good with coding so I don't know if I could make it work since it needs to be perfect to function. Sample scripts would be nice.
I didn't think the solution through initially I didnt realize the java would be executed locally on the users browser and not locally on the server side.
Basically I need the java to execute on the server side..... (where it will find the other box that jira is on...10.x.x.x since it has access to that internal ip but the world doesnt)
I'm reading up on curl now and that route.. seems daunting to me though I'm sure its simple to some. I'll post results if I figure it out to help others.... any other tips in the meantime is appreciated.
The basic html page is here.. as you can see it clearly loads the jira JS from the local ip (since its not run server side anyone accessing outside our LAN sees just a nice background and nothing else)

I don't know how to view the source for the JIRA form itself...
so I'm guessing in order to collect the fields of information on the php page and pass them along to the JIRA form I'd need to know how jira labels the fields.. so .. argh..
