    Default general question - building webpage with java app on it..

    Hello,
    Dear experts, please help! What I am looking for is just a general suggestion on what tools/general approach to use to do the following:
    I need to create a website which will have a single webpage, with very limited number of components on it: memo field (should be able to copy/paste large (1000 lines?) of text)), drop-down list to select something, just an input field and a button to click. Then I click the button, the app does something and displays results on the same webpage.
    The solution should be based on free software. I was thinking to host this webpage on the winxp or win2003 server, IIS is available, but can use apache as well, I was thinking about tomcat as app server. But not sure which gui (light weight) to use to create a webpage...
    thank you in advance!

    Just use HTML.
    Have Javascript firing off an Ajax call to your server, which will return the result (possiby a JSON string, depends on what data it is). More Javascript to process that result.

    Doesn't matter what the server has on it.
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.

    I agreed with Tolls. According to your requirement, HTML controls with JS/AJAX calls is more than enough. Are you doing any database interactions?
