i'm a beginner in programming with java and gwt.

I want to make a GUI with GWT, where a user can upload textfiles.

After uploading the textfile, i want that the application process the textfile with unix tools like wc or sort.

After processing the textfile with unix- tools, the application show the output of the unix-tools.

Is this possible with GWT and server-side-programming?

Welcome to the Ranch.

To upload the file, on the UI side, you can use the built in FileUpload widget.
To process it on the server side, you might need to use something like Apache file upload.
