application servlet communication

Hello!
I need my java application to communicate with my servlet probably using URLConnection class. Say I pass two parameters 'a','b' from the application and the servlet has a business logic that computes and returns the sum of 'a' and 'b' but not to a browser. How can I do it?
TIA

I would use RMI.

You will have to imitate the way a browser sends a GET request to a servlet, then parse the results out of the response you get.
Look at examples of GET URLs such as the one presently showing in your address window.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
