Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 Update 4 Developer's Guide to Java Web Applications

Java Web Applications

Web Server supports the Java™ Servlet 2.5 API specification and the JavaServer Pages™ (JSP™) 2.1 specification, which allows servlets and JSPs to be included in web applications.

A web application is a collection of servlets, JavaServer Pages, HTML documents, and other web resources that include image files, compressed archives, and other data. A web application can be packaged into a web archive (WAR) file or exist in an open directory structure.

Web Server 7.0 also supports, SHTML and CGI, which are not Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) application components. For more information about APIs and programming technologies, see Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 Update 4 Developer’s Guide.
