Hi,
I want to write an applet that would allow users to change their password on UNIX system. Normally, one would run UNIX's passwd command, but it's iteractive so I don't think I can run it through a JAVA applet running a shell script. Is there a way to accomplish what I want to do?
By the way, this does not have to be an applet, it can be a JSP page as well.
thanks,
Alex

Applets are not the right tool to do it!
The sandbox principle forbids this!
