    Java Servelets


    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.

    Any views??

    Thanks

    Steven,
    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
    as servlets.

    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.

    Regards,
    -Christian

    Re: Java Servelets

    Hi Christian,

    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?

    Thanks

    yann
