Hi, I've an XML file and I'm using XSLT to create few HTML pages on a windows machine. My problem is, whenever a user clicks on a link on the HTML page, I want to access a unix machine on the network and execute a unix command (basically to run a C++ program that creates an image -jpeg- file) and display the image back in the web broswer on the windows machine. Is there a possibility that I could do the same using XSLT (and its extensions) or is there any other way to generate webpages, with above functionality, from the data in an XML file? I've been doing some searching on the web but I haven't been successful. Any input/help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance, Hemanth.
