Bat-cgi-sripts om a NT server

I have written some cgi scripts in java and need to call the interpeter and the class file from a bat-file.
Bat file : jview xxx  (where xxx = xxx.class).

The problem is that my Nt-web-server(IIS 2.0) will not run the bat-file. How do I fix the setup on the web server so it run's the files??

Or am I far from geting anything out from the scripts I've written??

Try this:

Use the registry editor to find:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
   SYSTEM
      CurrentControlSet
         Services
            W3SVC
               Parameters
                  ScriptMap

Using the Edit Menu choose New. On the pop up menu which appears choose String Value. A new line should appear highlighted in the
name column on the right hand side of the Registry Editor screen.

Type .bat (don't forget the '.') and press return.

Now highlight the .bat line which should be in your registry listing and double click it. You should get an Edit String
dialogue box. In the Value Data box add a few %s's with spaces
between them ie:  %s %s %s %s (however many you like). These
should allow you to pass parameters to your batch files.

Choose exit from the registry menu.

This *SHOULD* allow you to run .bat files as scripts on your
server. However, you should be careful:

1) Be very aware of the security implications and make sure
your /scripts directory is very secure from misuse.

2) Be aware of potential misuse of any parameters passed to
batch files (ie. if you have a batch file that deletes the
file passed to it as an argument be aware that people could
call it directly with *.* as the argument!!!).

3) I haven't tried this myself so I can't guarantee it works but I'm pretty certain it will as this is how you enable other scripting languages not supported by default.

4) You could probably achieve something similar by using perl
or another programming language and simply spawning your program
from the code...

Good luck!
