Hi, I want to know: 1) What is servlet and where will it be used? Is it related to EJB, JSP or Applet? 2) In JRE, the class loader adds security by separating the namespaces for the classes of the local file system from those imported from network sources. This limits any Trojan horse applications as local classes are always loaded first. (a) What is Trojan horse applications? (b) Why local classes are loaded first which will increase the code security? 3) I saw the document that hotspot client is included in 1.3 version, does the compiler use hotspot to compile the java code if I run the jdk1.3? Is hotspot a JIT virtual machine which is faster than the traditional JVM? Thanks for any kind help. Andrew
