When you want your application to talk with a web server it doesn't matter
if its PHP, JSP or ASP. You have to use HTTP protocol to connect to
webserver. If you have simple needs look for 'urllib' in python standard
library,  Use threads while using urllib with your GUI other wise the whole
application will become unresponsive.
