Overview of Java Servlets


Servlets provide the ability to generate pages dynamically using the Servlet extensions to the Java language. Servlets have the following advantages over other common server extension mechanisms:


  • They are faster than CGI scripts because they use a different process model.
  • They use a standard API that is supported by many Web servers.
  • They have all of the advantages of the Java language, including ease of development and platform independence.
  • They can access the large set of APIs available for the Java platform.


We offer servers running JDK 1.2 and above with JServ as our standard platform for Servlets.

JavaServer Pages (JSP)


Pages that use JSP are stored on the server as HTML with extra syntax to access Java programs embedded within them. This means that you can use all the usual tools to generate the look and feel of the pages, and embed the active contents within them easily. Other features allow easy connection between HTML Forms and Bean objects for processing.
