I have a method in a servlet and want to invoke it form another. Any ideas how can this be done?

Thx.

That way lies grief. It'd be best to factor the common code out of the first servlet so that it can be more easily reused across multiple servlets. Probably the best way to do this would be to create an abstract servlet class containing the common code that both your servlets could extend.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
