I remain confused about what exactly you want to do.

You've mentioned Python, JPython, Java, Javascript, and applets, but
not forms or CGI. If you want to ask for and record simple feedback, it
sounds like you need to create an HTML form and write a CGI script,
which you certainly could do with CPython, with the aid of the cgi
module and possibly HTMLgen.
