Hello,
I have a form generated in Perl CGI....now as the user enters the values in the form I need to submit these values to a Java program to process this data. I am writing the result to a file in the java code and then trying to access this result in my Perl CGI code. So, the picture is something like  this:

Perl-CGI form---------->Java Code
      ^                                |
       |                                |
       |---------------------- Result stored in File

Can someone please let me know how this is possible. I tried but the CGI is not calling the Java code at all. I need this to be done very urgently.

Thanks a lot in advance
Hari Krishna

Assuming you are talking about server side Java.   If so, it's a simple matter of using a system call, eg:

system("java prog arg1 arg2") == 0 or die "Can not run java prog $!\n";
