Which of the following are true statements?
A Servlets are not instantiated.
B JSP page is translated into a servlet when it is first invoked.
C J2EE specifies two types of Web components.
D Servlet engines are free to retire servlets at any time.
I thought B and C are correc t but the answers say that D is also true.
Are Servlet engines free to retire servlets at any time.

Thanks,

From what I understand, a servlet engine might retire a servlet at any time. Imagine the engine needing to free memory because it's running out of it. So it can, for example, destroy the instance of a servlet which has been used less.
