[protege-owl] protege-owl Digest, Vol 42, Issue 78

Thanks Pooven.  Yes, originally I was thinking about executing a JAVA  
application which creates a text file on the server and then reading  
the file.  However, I would have to make sure that the javascript is  
informed of exactly when this Java app completes.  I will take a  
serious look at JSP like you mentioned, as they seem to provide what  
I'm looking for, and the fact that I haven't food many resources  
online which call Java apps from javascript is probably reason enough  
to assume that there are better ways to accomplish this.
