Hi,

I would like to use the existing Java Code to Work on raw data and insert result data into Splunk Index which i need to trigger from the Splunk Web App. How can i do that?

How can i use normal Splunk Web html to call post method of Java Servlet?

Regards,
Arun

How much Java code are we talking about ? It may be easier and more elegant to replicate this Java code in Python in a Django view in the Splunk Web Framework.

Hi Damien,

Yes am trying to call a Servlet or a Java Code(if not Servlet) hosted in the same server.
And i need to get results from the Java Code which will execute an algorithm which will create another index and dump results into that.

Can we call the java program from python script in Splunk?

Can we use Splunk button for other purposes instead of only Querying the Splunkd? (Just like forms in jsp and servlets!!)

Regards,
Arun

Are you trying to call a servlet hosted in another web container , or are you wanting to run the servlet code in Splunk web (which you can't BTW) , please clarify.
