Hi.

Can anyone tell me, can be there any application which uses JSP/Servlet as a framework?
How the flow of the application can be done efficiently?


Thanks in Advance

Hi,

Do you mean a framework which is based on Servlets and JSP ? If yes, then yes there are such frameworks, like Struts and JSF.

Best of luck ...

Are you looking for a framework built on top of Servlets/JSP or are you asking if an application can be written without a framework?

No Im not asking about the Struts or JSF, Can JSP and Servlets alone can make a framework?

Struts is build on top of servlet technology.

Are you asking whether a web application framework be built using only servlet and jsp technology ?

Sure.
You could build an entire web application without servlets and JSP if you wanted to. It would be an absurd waste of time to implement everything that existing containers and the servlet spec do for us now, but it could be done.

In that sense, Servlets are a framework.
They take care of most of the low level drudgery and let us focus on our app.

Some frameworks try to abstract web programming even further.
Most of them (in my opinion) go to far and create as many obstacles to getting things done as they solve.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
