when you type http://localhost:8080/examples/servlets
it will go to servlets exapmle's page.
can anybody explain what's happening behind the scene?
is it handled by a servlet or just a .html page?
i cannot find information in web.xml in examples/web-inf.
how can i implement like this in my own application?
