The servlets discussed in this chapter are primarily Dynamo servlets, meaning they are servlets that are created exclusively for use within Nucleus. For example, servlets that implement the PipelinableServlet or the DispatcherPipelineableServlet interface are Dynamo servlets.

Dynamo servlets should not be confused with J2EE servlets, which are servlets that run in a J2EE Web container and follow the standards defined by the J2EE specifications. J2EE servlets and filters can interact with the request in much the same way that Dynamo servlets can. Here are some key differences between them:

Use the type of resources that best suit your preferences. You might find J2EE servlets and filters a more portable and familiar technology in comparison to Dynamo servlets.

The J2EE specifications describe how to create J2EE servlets and filters. For information on how to implement J2EE resources in the ATG platform , see Accessing Nucleus in a Web Application.
