The direct answer is yes, you can treat servlets like any other Java class.

The real answer is "Why do you want to do that?" Once you make a servlet yourself, it no longer can act like a servlet because the container doesn't have control over it.

So, What do you you REALLY want to do? Why would you want an array of your Servlet type?

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
