Servlets/ Applets

As everyone who has ever read my messages probably already know that Im currently working on a chess program. Im trying to create a chess program that two people can play online. This is a big project. And I may never complete it. But I don't give up easily. My programming experience is from practice only. What I'm trying to understand is servlets. What I believe is that they are programs that run on the server. The applet I guess is what runs on the clients computer, and is the graphical user interface of the game. What Im wondering is do I need a servlet for every game started. Or am I suppose to create a servlet to handle all the games at once. Which would seem almost impossible. Also do most web host support servlets. Anyways I would appriate any help on this subject. Thanks Terry Stehle
