How should I approach utilizing a client made Java AI bot on Squarespace?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! 

I have a client that I am working with who is working on developing a simple Chess AI Bot (this is his first time working with Java). Right now he only has very simple Java that was shared with me on his GitHub.

He's looking to "host" the bot on Squarespace. I am almost 100% sure that's not something that can be done, and so in my research, I found that he would most likely need to create a web app and embed it on the site.

My question is how would I approach finding the resources to share with him to do that part of the development or how should I approach this in general? I know very little of Java so I don't even know where to start.

I'm not a Java developer but apparently there may be some ways to run it browser side. I think traditionally Java has been a server side language.

I have no idea if Java could work in the browser with SS as a host.

If I were to approach this I'd probably look at if AWS (Amazon Web Services) could host the app and then you'd embed it in the SS site.
