Disadvantage of using Vectors

I am using vectors to store results retrieved by servlets from the database. These vectors are then used by JSP's to display on the html page. Is there any disadvantage of using vectors? Should Hashtables be used instead of Vectors?

Hi,
You could use arraylist instead.
ArrayList are faster than vectors since they are unsynchronised.
