What is a Java Servlet?
"Servlets are generic extensions to Java-enabled servers. Their most common use is to extend Web servers, providing a very secure, portable, and easy-to-use replacement for CGI. A servlet is a dynamically loaded module that services requests from a Web server. It runs entirely inside the Java Virtual Machine. Because the servlet is running on the server side, it does not depend on browser compatibility."**
