I am making a Web GUI for a Java application, using servlets. At the moment, I am running the servlets in Tomcat 4, separately to the main application; communication between the servlets and main application is by CORBA. However, I don't really need all the super features of Tomcat for this application. In fact, they get in the way (e.g. ClassLoader problems). Also, it means that I have two JVMs consuming resources. Is there a way to run a fixed set of servlets within my main application? A third-party library, perhaps? Alternatively, is it a huge task to write a simple servlet runner, to go within my application?
Betty Rubble? Well, I would go with Betty... but I'd be thinking of Wilma.
