For those who came from ASP enviroment what's the analogy with SERVER_VARIABLES in servlets?
Is there any way do get all information sent by a browser like broser type, operating system and so forth. I found how to get host address and a few others. But in ASP was a collection of all such variables. I bet there is one in JSP/SErvlets:-)
