It's the only specification-compliant way to deploy servlets. Some containers implement other ways (e.g. Tomcat's invoker servlet), but those generally have drawbacks, and should be avoided.

What is the reason for wanting to do this?

"Manju KT",
It is now very important that you check your private messages and follow the instructions in them.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
