How do I run an unix script?

I have no jsp experience thus the dilema. What I am trying to do is to generate a drop down menu dynamically using jsp. I have a unix script that returns to me a list of variables that I would like to use to populate a drop down menu.
How do I call the script and how do I then get the data into the menu?
I am using the unix sript to access another application that returns a set of directories that I then parse for particular values.

I can't help thinking that this is more of a Unix problem than a specifically JSP one, so I've moved it to Linux/Unix for you.
