Java Servlets and JavaServer Pages (JSP)

Web Server supports the Java™ Servlet 2.4 specification, including web application and the JavaServer Pages™ (JSP™) 2.0 specification.

Java servlets are server-side Java programs that can be used to generate dynamic content in response to client requests in much the same way as CGI programs. Servlets are accessed through URL invocation.

You create servlets using the Java Servlets API. Web Server includes all of the files necessary for developing and running Java servlets.

For information about using the Java Servlet API, see the documentation from Sun at:

A JSP page is a page that can be viewed in a web browser, much like an HTML page. However, in addition to HTML tags, it can include a set of JSP tags and directives intermixed with Java code that extend the ability of the web page designer to incorporate dynamic content in a page. These additional features provide functionality such as displaying property values and using simple conditionals.

For more information about creating web applications that use servlets and JSPs on Web Server, see the Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 Developer’s Guide to Java Web Applications.
