Hi,

I am working on understanding how the trio : web server app - Container app - servlet, functions. For this I am reading a nearly worn-out copy of "Head First Servlets and JSP" from my local library.
In chapter 2 there is an exercise where one has to determine wether server, container or servlet is primarily responsible for a certain task. In the solutions the task "Converts a response object to an HTTP response" has been put in the server-column. Is this a typo or dos eg. Tomcat actually know how to do this? I put it in the container column.

Please avoid abbreviations (eg "q") which aren't familiar to everybody.

We have a servlets forum, so I shall move this question there.
