Triggering a java app on the server.

I have an analysis program, written in Java, which just needs to be "triggered" on a server. It generates static HTML and images. It's not written as a servlet, but of course could be.
Here are the questions:
Does my client need to purchase an add-on servlet engine such as JRUN in order to interface a java app with their server? They currently use IIS, but that situation might change.
If so, does anyone know of a way to simply "trigger" a java application on the server? Hopefully without major security issues.
Thanks in advance.

If their server is already set up to run (for instance) Perl for CGI scripts you could execute your analysis program with a Perl script.
You could also run your program from a Java servlet. The free Tomcat servlet engine can be attached to IIS.
