Just a general enquiry on peoples views on Java Servelets as a server side
web processing technology. I'm thinking of using them in an MSc project and
I wonder how they compare to regular CGI and ASP. I wonder how relevant they
are to the IT industry. I don't want to centre a project around something
which people in the industry have no respect for.
Re: Java Servelets
I am a fan of Java Servlets. Barring the usual advantages of Java you will
find that servlets perform very well against custom CGI. Keep in mind though
that if you already have access to a CGI library you should probably integrate
that into your servlet environment instead of rewriting the apps as servlets.
JSP is essentially a way of writing servlets with the HTML embedded. The
syntax is similar to ASP, but the performance and capabilities are the same
I recently migrated a client-server invoice processing application to a Java
Servlet environment. The result was a robust, functional, and convenient
upgrade. The application handled over $6,000,000 a month in invoices with
about 40-50 total users. If you would like to discuss my experiences with
servlets, send me an email.

Re: Java Servelets
I have an Applet that reads data into a textfile located on my server.
Now, I want to allow the users of the applet to add lines to the
textfile. I think that a Servlet is the solution, but I don't know
anything about it. Can you help me ?
I am not administrator of the server. Can I run a servlet on it anyway?
