Hi there!
I programmed a piece of software in JavaScript, that has its logic all in the code on client-side (browser). My problem is, that the users name etc (submitted only in the end of the game), has to be stored in a file (or db) on the webserver, but I have no rights to set up a servlet-engine to take care of the data submitted by the browser. What other options are possible?
Thanx for your help!

Why does it need to be written on the server?
Is it acceptable to put it in a Cookie?

No, it has to be read by another software (on the server) to be evaluated.

You can use CGI/Perl to process the results, otherwise you might need an applet on the client to write to the server, but this is a really unsecure solution.
If you can't put any processing on the server, you're resonably stuck.
