In short, all is in the name : Generic ... The purpose is to set a simple class which allow to develop rapidly generic servlet. That's all ! Anyway, most developpers use Http version of the servlet.

Thankx Stephane and Tim ! Stephane , so was it to make servlet developers life lill 'easy' ? I knw we all extend HttpServlet , but it IS-A GenericServlet , which further IS-A Servlet-Config , which effectively implies HttpServlet IS-A Servlet-Config . So sometimes to make life easier , we have to relax OOPs-thinga lill Yes Tim i got da perfect ans to second q , by looking at source code . thankx ------------------ Gagan (/^_^\) SCJP2 Die-hard JavaMonk -- little Java a day , keeps u going .
