Theoretically, maybe. GRASS is an analysis package though, rendering
maps for web display is best done by something meant for that like
mapserver, geoserver, mapnik, featureserver, etc.
For serving maps from datasets I recommend you look at those options. If
you want to run some grass tools based on user input and show the
results you would setup a workflow of web interface->grass->map
You may also consider using libgeos in java to perform spatial
operations on your data and return you objects that can be displayed
with the above mentioned tools or you're own custom graphic widget.
