Neither of those are packages. "javax.servlet.http" is a package name, and all classes inside of it make up a package.

"Servlet" is an interface, and "HttpServlet" is a class that implements that interface with the help of the GenericServlet class, which it extends.

Did you mean the difference between a GenericServlet and a HttpServlet ?

The javadocs of HttpServlet and GenericServlet explicitly mention the differences between the two classes, and they also show a bunch of methods in HttpServlet that are not in GenericServlet (specifically, all the HTTP-related stuff).

The javadocs are generally a good place to start if you want to learn about a particular class.
