    Default Is Jave the right tool for my need

    I have a need to develop an interface that can be hosted on a web server, and deployed either on the internet, or on an intranet, that will allow a user to enter certain information into text boxes, and have that input inserted into a template that contains both fixed text, and the variables entered for output into a text file, that is written to a specified folder on a specified server (which may be on the other side of a firewall from the web server). The template will vary depending on the specific values being entered, so multiple templates will need to exist, and the proper one is automatically selected, based on user input. The templates should be modifiable via updates, and the server information should be configurable.

    I would like to know if Java is the right tool to develop this, or if I should look at other options. Thanks.

    I assume you have none or little Java experience. So it will take you ages (litterally) to develop this, but it sounds possible to me.

    Hi PhHein...you are correct, I do not have any java programming experience, however, I have worked in software delivery for 12 years, so I have a pretty good idea of knowing what I want, and how to express it. Before I go looking around for someone who could do the work, I at least wanted to make sure it was even feasible and logical to do it using Java. Thanks for your input.

    That's a simple web front end.

    There are several templating tools for Java. Velocity is the first that springs to mind, but that's because I happen to be looking at some Velocity templates at the moment.

    That's networking stuff that would apply to any language.

    That just code, and simple deployment stuff that would apply to any language.

    Nothing Java specific about this part.

    If Java couldn't do the above then it wouldn't be used in the back of lots of websites.
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.
