using servlets here??

i just wanted to know if the following is possible using Servlets.
i have two text files containing some data about the states in USA
ie say data file1 (area.txt) has data in the format: name of the state
followed by a tab and then the data value ie
New York 12000
New jersey 15000
and data file2 (den.txt) has New York 100
New Jersey 200

now i extract the values "12000,15000 etc" from file 1 and
"100,200 etc" from file 2 and do a calculation like dividing "12000" with
"100","15000" by "200" etc. i have finished this part.
now is it possible to use servlet/JSP to map the results into a new
file. the new file should be as follows ie the name of the state with
the corresponding result value)
New York 120
New jersey 150
ie the results obtained from the above calculations are to be mapped
onto their respective state names?
i need ur guidance in proceeding with the above functionality.
thanks in advance

Yes it is possible. Give or take some restrictions, a servlet behaves pretty much like an ordinary java class. All you should be asking is if Servlets are the right choice of technology to use - in this case they would be you need to provide this functionality remotely through a web client.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
