servlets1
Servlets
  • Java based web server extension mechanism
  • Based on HTTP request-response Paradigm
  • Multi threaded, Session Management
  • Versions
    • J2EE v1.2 – Servlets 2.2
    • J2EE v1.3 - 2.3 (Draft)
  • Usage Scenarios
    • Creating dynamic web applications
    • Finer control than JSP
features
Features
  • Extend Web Server Functionality
    • Similar to CGI-BIN, NSAPI/ISAPI extensions, apache Modules
  • Portable
    • Multiple Servlet implementations on various platforms
  • Rich
    • Can call any Java API, such as JDBC, EJB, JNDI etc.
  • High Performance
    • Loaded into memory once and called
    • Uses threads for concurrency
    • Can maintain connection pools
features1
Features
  • Converts HTTP Form parameters into a Hashtable
  • Customizable Session Management capabilities
    • Using cookies and URL rewriting
    • Application Servers implement session management Mechanisms
      • Memory, File System, Relational Database; Web farm compatible
  • Leverage other java capabilities such as localization
slide9
JSP
  • Embedded dynamic Java scriptlets
  • Similar to ASP and Server Side JavaScript
  • Implemented as a “Self-Managed” Servlet
    • “Compiled” into Servlets and kept in Memory
  • Separates presentation from business logic
  • Tag Extension mechanism
  • Versions
    • J2EE v1.2 – JSP 1.1
    • J2EE v1.3 – JSP 1.2 (Draft)
  • Usage Scenarios
    • Dynamic/flexible presentation layer
