    Javascript-Creating a page to do a couple of things

    HI guys, I'm quite a novice when it comes to this but was wondering how do I create a simple page to :

    Enter a filename
    Enter an email address

    Submit

    When submit is pressed, I want to call a program to convert the file and then send it to the email that was entered.

    I've got the form designed but I'm not sure how to get the submit part started

    Do you have a server to submit the form to? Since you posted this in the Java forum I'll go ahead and suggest servlets.

    In a nutshell, you need a server-side program listening on a host that will accept an HTTP POST request sending your form data. You can process it and send the HTTP response (HTTPServletResponse I believe if you use a servlet) that has the result of your processed data.
