And in with the new, but I'm looking at the old version of VideoServlet and I noticed I had made use of an abstract class whose purpose was to create some object for storing the videos. The assignment now wants a servlet class and another jsp. I'm trying to remember the rationale for using the abstract class, and why the same approach wouldn't apply here. I'm assuming all of the code for declaring the list of videos, adding to it, and retreiving it for display should go inside the one servlet class. Should I bother reying to re-work old stuff, or would I be better off starting fresh?
You don't need an abstract class because all the servlet stuff is inside one class now. When I redid the assignment, I took some stuff from the old, but it's a lot different now. I'm not sure how much the old will help you.
