Hi all,

I know we have a Generic Servlet and a HttpServlet.HttpServlet is specific to HTTP Protocol.Generic Servlet is not specific to HttpProtocol.
So what should i do i want to locate a servlet with out using http protocol { i dont want to use the http://servername/contextRoot/URLPattern }.Is there any way to access a GenericServlet with out the above mentioned method.


Have a Great Day!
