I have a button in jsp and when activated it needs to send message to the command prompt on the server to compile a file.( similar for running a file). code for the button is
<html>
<body>
<div align="center">
<form method="post" action="temp.jsp" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<center>
<h4>Command for compiling the code at the prompt:</h4>
<input name="program" type="text">
<input type="submit" name="compile" value="Compile">
<input type="reset" name="clearform" value="Clear form">
<h4>Command for executing the code at the prompt:</h4>
<input name="program" type="text">
<input type="submit" name="run" value=" Run ">
<input type="reset" name="clearform" value="Clear form">
</center>
</form>
</body>
</html>
what is needed to be written in temp.jsp("the action file") is there any functin for directly for sending text to the command prompt and executing it. if so what is it and how is it done....
