Welcome to TSDN.

Why not just use Ajax for this? The server-side code returns you some HTML which you can display.

Thanks for u'r reply.
I don't have any idea on Ajax?
Actually what i need to do is,
1. User will enter some input to the html page and i need to process it by an external application and i need to give the result back to user.( like JSP ans Servlet) but i would like to do this without using java. That is y i thought to produce a seperate html page from the external application and produce it to the user.
Will this work with Ajax?
Pls do reply...

It will work with Ajax, but as part of ajax, you need to use a server-side language.

See the Ajax tutorial links in the Offsite Links thread at the top of this forum.

Hi,
Any other way other than Ajax?
Because i need to run an application without installing any software?
for eg: with c or c++ with Html.
Inorder to work with ajax the user have to install ajax right?
I would like to develop a simple application without forcing the user to install any s/w.


Thanks
