I'm new in the field of J2EE application development. I'm confused that when exactly the servlet technology was introduced. I have two books, one says that it was introduced in the year 1999 while the other contradicts and says that the year was 1996. Which one is correct?
I have notes in my servlets book that API 2.0 was released in 1997, the first Servlet Development Kit in 1998 and version 2.2 of the API in December 1999. I have no idea about APIs prior to 2.0. Bill

So will it be correct to say that the Servlet technology was inroduced in the year 1996.
Am I correct on the SingleThreadModel interface? Is it really deprecated by the J2EE 1.4 spec.

SingleThreadModel is not deprecated in the 2.3 servlet API - however it has completely fallen out of favor. If you think you have to use it your architecture is probably wrong. I believe it was originally introduced to help beginners make the transition from programming in the single-user-desktop-application model to the multiple user stateless client-server model. A pretty big conceptual jump. Bill
