What is the best way to use python scripts with Geoserver?

VictoriaH
I know only part of this question is relevant to Geoserver. I am using Open Layers to serve some layers served by Geoserver. I have a python script that takes user input from the web page, and returns a GeoJSON file. What is the best way to use a python script to accomplish this? Is there a preferred method for where I put the python script, and call it in a Geoserver/Open Layers framework? I am a little unclear as to where to put the script in my file structure so that it can be called from the web client. Any suggestions would be appreciated...

Thanks, VickH

Even though you are talking to Geoserver, this script needs to be executed
by the web server that is hosting your Openlayers page, not Geoserver. There
will need to be an executable directory on the web server e.g. cgi-bin,
where you put the script. The web server will need to be configured to
understand that python extension files (.py) are considered executable.
