This question gets asked a lot so you can find plenty of discussions on the subject if you search this forum.

In short, genericServlet isn't used anywhere.
All the well known containers implement HttpServlet.

The Servlets FAQ has a section on using protocols other than HTTP, which may be of tangential relevance to your question.
