Hi All,
Can a JSP container exist without servlet container. What abt vice -versa.
Can I use JSP v 1.2 container with servlet container v2.2.

A JSP is compiled to a servlet, so it can't work outside of a servlet engine.
You could presumably build a server that would run JSP but refuse to run Servlets that did not start out as JSPs, but why would you ever want to do that?
A Servlet container cannot run JSPs without a JSP translator (the thing that converts JSP to Servlet code) -- so in principle you can have a non-JSP Servlet container (it wont be J2EE spec complient tho).
I agree. Here's the link:
