Thanks you Charles, and to everyone else who replied to me.
I had a look at a few things and Graham Murray (thanks) gave me some
WebAf docs which give details on how this can be done. One in
particular 'Getting started with AppDev studio' talks about
InformationBeans and shows how to list and access SAS data sets in a
fairly simple fashion (drag and drop). The 'Developing Java Based
Applications' course notes reinforce this and as such WebAF would seem
to offer a very nice solution. It's a pity we don't have it here
SAS IntrNet might be able to accomplish the same thing but it appears
it would take quite a lot of coding and the nice look-and-feel might
be missing i.e. it would be very obviously HTML.
Finally, the AppDev studio book I mentioned plots the SAS technologies
against the degree of client interaction: WebAF for Java Applets is
highest, WebAF for Java Server is middle, and SAS Intrnet and ODS are
