making a web service call which returns an html document

Good Day,

We have a system with a number of components. Alfresco is our back end content management system.

What we need to do is in Alfresco run a script against an xml file. The script would make a web service call to another application passing the xml file and the response would contain an html formatted file which we would then display to the client (the html file will not be saved, just streamed to the console). We don't want to save the html in Alfresco as it could become unsynched with the xml..

We are running an older version of alfresco (2.9 community)

What would be the best way to do this? action executer or webscript or javascript? or something else?

Thank you,
Bruce
