I'm puttering with HTML and CGI and things  with Jetty  just don't work as "advertised" in the books on HTML and CGI.  Jetty supports HTML beautifully until I try to execute a server-side shell script  to store data from a form .  I get a popup on my desktop web browser asking for permission to execute the shell script locally or download it.   
I'm trying to gather some information from the network operations desk and make it available for query in real time.  Currently they post the data to a log at the end of the shift.  The form fill-in works nicely but I have to figure out how to store the data at the server end.   
Can  someone confirm Jetty does not support CGI in the normal fashion?   Any suggestions on alternatives for server-side execution in the Jetty environment?  Do I have to implement this in XML as a Jetty Servlet?
