hi Most of the people r using HTTP servlets... but some people may want to use servlets with some other protocol .. then they use Generic servlets... but nobody is using Generic servlets in real time ....
It isn't a silly question at all. But it is one that has been asked many times in this forum. If you do a quick search on GenericServlet in this forum you will get 100+ responses that all ask this same question! Look through the results and if you still have questions, please ask!
