let me get this straight....

Am I correct in concluding that...

When a HttpServlet receives a request, the object's service(ServletRequest request, ServletResponse response) method is called (inherited from GenericServlet) and that method in turn calls the object's service(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) method.
In essence, the method would look like this...
public void service(ServletRequest request, ServletResponse response) throws IOException, ServletException
{
service((HttpServletRequest)request, (HttpServletRespose)response); // object casting
}
Am I on the right track?

hi jimmey,
yeah u r on the right track...whenever a request is made the service method of the Generic Servelet class is called , then if its a HttpServlet the service method has to be overridden by HttpServlet's service( public/protected)which in turn calls either the doGet/doPost as per the mode of request.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
