I've got a simple webapp running on Google App Engine (python). I want to extend the functionality of my my webapp and this requires running a Windows executable on a user uploaded JPG file. This cannot be done on App Engine.
Thoughts I've had are to stick the executable on a server somewhere, figure out how to put a python wrapper around it and dial into it with appengine when I need to. I've only been exposed to relatively simple App Engine environment and only know python so I was wondering if someone could suggest some ideas as to the best (and quickest) way to do this?
