Hi,
Can somebody help me on this.
Considering the life cycle of Servlet,if init() is not overridden , init() of GenericServlet is called.Then the service() of HttpServlet class is called. service() is available in the GenericServlet also. Could you please describe me the reason for calling service() of HttpServlet class rather than calling service() of GenericServlet.

thanks
Shini

service() of GenericServlet is abstract - it doesn't actually exist. HttpServlet extends GenericServlet and implements the service() method.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
