[Mediawiki-l] automatically inserting content into the wiki

I'm trying to write a programm with java to insert content automatically
into the wiki.
I set the POST variables and the submit button value and then send the
request to the server. Now comes the problem that MediaWiki doesn't let me
post anything.
The page returned is only the preview page, but exactly with the content I
wanted to post.

So I've got the question whether there are any special variables to be set.
Looking at the source code I saw that there are some hidden fields.
Do they all have to be set to get this posted?
Or are there any other problems or things I have to consider?

Thanks for any help or links.
