Hi all,

I am developping a Web application with Servlets/JSP and Javascript, and I have the following requirement:
On the client(user) of the Web application,there is a scanner which
is connected to the client machine and when the user puts a document (such as a paper containing text and images) on the surface of the scanner, he can click on a button on a form of the Web application and this click must trigger the scanning process and the file resulting of the scanning must be placed in a folder of the client machine (let's say this folder is D:\Images).
Please , how can I solve this problem using Javascript??
Thanks you in advance for your answers.

You can't.

You'll need something active on the client such as an Applet.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
