according to requirment
a system is developed by perl,HTML, CGI and an Oracle database
Could a java application client access this sytem?

public class Walter{

return is_boss_Coming;

Yes. But what you should consider is not whether it can access the system but how it could interface to the results that the CGI system kicks out. Your not suppose to rewrite any functionality with the FFS. All you need to show is that your design can successfully interface to the system and parse the results. The actual implementation is down to the developers as you are the architect and not the developer.

Again, your getting down to implementation details and thats not what your suppose to do. Also, accessing the database directly is not a good choice since it implies you understand the business logic and your expected to provide an architecual solution that uses what is already there. [Hint]A better approach would be to try and access the FFS via HTTP.

I'm inexplicit at this question. I may be access the FFS via HTTP,but it return html's result,How am I parse this html to get result?
is this viable ?

Yes it is viable. However, as an architect you are not expected to to speak implementation for the assignment. This is the role of a developer. You will however be expected to discuss and document various J2EE components that will help you with this specific area. Thats the role of the component diagram.
