Hi, 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.
