Java - CGI ???

Hi all,

It was recommended I visit this TA so here goes.

I've built a simple zip program in java (then I jar'd it) that does exactly what I want it to do from the windows command line editor.  I need this program to run on the web server based on an action from my users.  I'm looking at passing my command line arguments to a vbscript file and then launching the jar file.  I havn't tested this yet so I guess what I'm doing here is asking if I'm headed down the right road.

My web server is IIS 5.0 on a WinXP box.  My JDK is 1.4.2_04.  My vbscript engine is 5.0.

Any information is appreciated.  I'm kinda restricted on installing any third party tools on to the web server (other than mine).

Thanks

Just convert your Java program into an applet and then you can run the program directly on the webpage.

no can do.  The program works with files on the server.  Unless I'm missing something here...

apparition,

I should have been more thorough in my explanation.  However, your suggestion would work if it weren't for the file issues so I give you the points.
