'm working on developing a server in java to embed it into a new programming language as a part of run time support. I don't want php/asp or any script support, but I need to send requests from html pages and get responses( like forms) is there any way i can just use html/ java script without any support from server side script ?

How did people use web forms before php/asp were discovered?

well I'm developing a web server written in java to support a new programming language called system jane i need the server to be responsive ,i.e; taking form data and responding but it cannot support php/asp .. so i need a simpler solution – YBV Mar 19 '12 at 7:33
You have Java but you're not using JSP? – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Mar 19 '12 at 7:43
well, the sever is wholly in one java file. So I'm basically confused on how to add asp support to it – YBV Mar 19 '12 at 8:12

but I need to send requests from html pages

The only way to have a website send requests is either by the visitor going to another page or by an asynchronous call by Javascript. This is done using XHR, or using more advanced frameworks like doing a (or get depending on the type of request you want to sent).
