I'm trying to create a GUI that will connect to a socket and grab fields from a C or C++ server to display back to the user, and also be able to grab inputs from the user and send back to the server.

What is the best web-based language to implement this GUI in? The server will be on Apache...

any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

If you're using Apache, your best bet is JSP.  If you don't wish to use JSP, try PHP.  Those are pretty much your easiest and most convinient options.

JM,

So JSP and PHP will both allow me to get access to C and C++ codes? Do you know where I can go to see some examples?

If you could make a component of your C or C++ code, you can access it using PHP and JSP.  For samples on how to access external COM objects in PHP, visit this http://builder.com.com/5100-31-5077752.html

I am not an expert in JSP, but it should be just as simple as PHP and ASP to link to external COM objects.

I think you might want to look into the two languages and find out which one will fit your needs.
