Hi every one,

Do you have any idea on how we can run a jacl command script to call a WAS web container http intercepter method?
I am new to jacl and websphere admin and now I need to call a servlet from a jacl command.
Thanks in advance

Can you explain WHY you need to call a Servlet from a JACL command? There is a way to call out to Java from JACL in WAS, but I'd be dubious about doing it -- please explain why you think you need to first.

Thanks for your question.
The reason I need to call a servlet from jacl command is that: I have another independent programm running and needs to notify my web application of some important events. That program will run the jacl script file to do this.
I am just learning jacl. As I understand, jacl command can call methods on any object in the same jvm. If so, I need to know the web container object name and the appropriate method to call. Or more simple, can the jacl send a http request to the web container?
Anther simple solution would be to use a static flag and jacl script can set this flag. My web application will check this flag every time a new request come and decide on the action depending on the value of the flag
.......
I Hope to receive an advice from you.
Thanks
