Using and Writing Java Servlets

With the power of the Java API set, servlets can provide complex, dynamic web pages and form processing.
More and More

Of course, these examples show servlets completing simple tasks. Servlets can be expanded easily to handle cookies and keep a session for a person's range of activities, such as logging in to access certain data and then logging out.

Conclusion

The configuration of the web server to support servlets can be troublesome. However, servlets, with the power of the Java API set, can provide complex dynamic webs pages and form processing.

Good review. Right on target on the configuration being troublesome. The beating of old drums such as 'recompiling for new API's' or 'Java is slow' is unfortunately pure bantor. Everybody in every language recompiles code from time to time. And saying 'java is slow' is akin to the windoz jokers preaching that 'linux has no desktop interface'. How very yesterday....

Hi,

I tried your example of form response servlet. Can you tell me where should I put the html form file and the class file of the sevlet? so that I can try it on Abyss Server/Tomcat/Servletrunner

Thanks,

Alankar

I like the tutorial, it will help me learn. I wish some of the value judgements could have been left out. I am, however, sick of Java people bashing "scripting" langs that they clearly have no knowledge of.

No credit is given to mod_perl, which only loads one instance of the Perl interpreter. Within mod_perl, pages are compiled once and run many times during the life of the server process. Many major web sites use the power of mod_perl to leverage the speed of Apache and the power and flexibility of Perl to generate rich, dynamic, and lightning-fast Web sites.

The article is not about mod_perl. However I do agree the article is a bit misleading as nobody in their right mind uses perl/php via CGI with Apache.

I like this article but can u

One Click, Universal Protection: Implementing Centralized Security Policies on Linux Systems

As Linux continues to play an ever increasing role in corporate data centers and institutions, ensuring the integrity and protection of these systems must be a priority. With 60% of the world's websites and an increasing share of organization's mission-critical workloads running on Linux, failing to stop malware and other advanced threats on Linux can increasingly impact an organization's reputation and bottom line.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
