Running servlets/jsp in a stand alone application

Hi All,
Background : I have an application that uses jsp/servlets and xml files for data storage.Presently I run my application on an app server. My application does not use any of the app server APIs.
Problem Statement: I now wish to run my application as a stand alone application without an app server. I do find examples of such applications that would run an inbuilt server at command prompt.
Help Could any one suggest how to do it.
Thanks

It's not possible to keep your existing servlets/JSP's without writing your own server that implements the servlet and JSP specifications. You are in fact using the app server's implementations of the Servlet and JSP specifications.
You could a command line driven user interface (or swing UI) which calls classes in your business layer to perform whatever functionality you desire.
I would start by writing a new class with a main() method that calls a business layer method to do whatever you want.
