Hello,
I wonder if it is possible to make a main class to execute in the server by clicking a submit button in a web page.

greetings

Welcome to JavaRanch.

Do you mean something like a servlet (which is the standard way of executing Java code on a server)?

Yes, kind of. I have a some java code in a main class that I need to run whenever a button is clicked.
I understand the button should launch a servlet, and then, should I put the code of the main class in another one the servlet can call?

thanks
anna

You could make it a different class, or you could keep it in the servlet class. It depends a bit on what the class (or method) does, and how big it is.
