Some highly respectable members of the ranch consider servlets as only server applications. This thread a possibility for them to prove their point.

I often have no point. It's part of my charm. What's your point?

I don't understand the point of this post either. It's like asking us to prove that pixies don't exist.

As i said in the other topic, you can run a local server, or you can even embed a servlet container such as Jetty in an application, but you are still dealing with a server-client relationship.
