Using Applescript for Web Applications

Is it possible to use applescript to bridge web interaction with software applications?

For instance, let's say I want to be able to trash a log file that resides on my OSX Server, but I need to be able to do it from a web browser. In theory, is it possible to link this applescript (which is simply a script telling the finder to throw away that log file) to a form button on a web page? Like a CGI script? And are there other things possible? Where would I find a good resource for learning about using applescript for web application?

Thanks for any info,
John

Re: Using Applescript for Web Applications

You want an acgi. AppleScript CGI.

Look into Ethan Wilde's "AppleScript for the Internet" book. Although it doesn't cover OS X, it should provide a good start and/or understand of what's involved. (Page 179 to be exact)

In addition to T.J.'s recommendation, you might want to look at: commandLine.acgi
