    Default Website send commands Application


    So the past few years i have been working for a firm as a .net developer which is great but i have slowly been making a transition over to Linux.

    I have a problem to solve and am not 100% sure how to go about it.

    I have a Java application this application sits on a Dedicated server and gets information about the machine and run commands on the machine.

    I need it so that i can run these commands from pressing buttons on a website. For example i press a button to retrieve CPU info, it goes to the app, and the app sends the CPU info back.

    I'm fine with the website and app its just the middle bit. How do i get the app to run commands sent from a webpage. Been ratting my brains for a couple weeks now.

    Any help would be Useful

    Are you talking about the things a servlet or cgi-bin could do?
    Their instructions could be sent via query Strings on the HTTP request or via the Post data.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
