It means that a web application must follow some rules defined (at least a part of it) in the Servlet Specification, which you can download at the SCWCD links page : http://faq.javaranch.com/view?ScwcdLinks (see Servlets 2.4)

Servlets compliant web containers and web applications are required to follow those rules.

Servlets are written according to the Servlet specification. This specification outlines what a Servlet can do, how a Servlet should behave, and how programmers can write code to develop servlets.

Programmers write Servlets according to the Servlet API, with an expectation of how a Servlet will behave at deployment time. When a Servlet is deployed to an applicaiton Server, like WebSphere or WebLogic, the vendor ensures that the deployed servlet behaves as a developer would expect it.

Here's a little link that describes Servlets and the J2EE server at runtime:
