You could write a servlet that accepts the uploaded files, stores them in the file system, and executes them via Runtime.exec or ProcessBuilder. It could then read the results (either directly from the process output, or from a file created by the scripts), and then forwards to a JSP that display those results. All this assumes that the servlet (or rather, the servlet container) have the proper permissions to do all that.

As a general security precaution, I'd be very hesitant to let users upload and run arbitrary scripts, though. Your system administratir would probably agree to that.
I agree. Here's the link:
