I just realized that I don't know anyone who has (to my knowledge) used javax.servlet.GenericServlet instead of the de-facto standard javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet. I would like to hear if you have used it -- and what you used it for (and with which appserver)...
Thanks.

Do you mean is anyone using servlets for anything other than http web servers ? Or is anyone using GenericServlet rather than HttpServlet for http ?
I think that the people who designed the servlet spec were being cautions, and assuming that someone *might* in future want to use servlets for other protocols. As far as I am aware, no-one has yet.

Exactly. I meant to ask whether anyone is using the Servlet API for processing something else than HTTP requests. I assume it would require explicit support from the web container...
