I am trying to achieve two things as follows:
1) I am trying to execute a python script from within a browser, it should take input from button provided on the webpage. Please guide, does it have to be using CGI? Please let me know if there is any other way to do this.
2) When this script gets executed it generates some PDFs on the filesystem, i want to have a option pop up which asks to save the PDF on local system(where browser resides).
This script sits on linux server.
I am a system admin and not a java programmer, any help in this regard is highky appreciated.
