An Introduction to Java Servlets
(Page 1 of 10 )

Java servlets are making headlines these days, claiming to solve many of the problems associated with CGI and proprietary server APIs. In this article I will describe the overall servlet architecture and what you need to develop your application with servlets. I will use several code examples to show you how to use the Servlet API, and compare it with CGI and proprietary server APIs where appropriate.

I assume that you're familiar with HTTP and CGI or a proprietary server API like NSAPI or ISAPI. I also assume that you are somewhat familiar with Java programming or some other object-oriented language, such as C++. Even if you're not a Java programmer, then you should be able to appreciate the benefits of servlets after you’ve read this article.
