Enable the Invoker Servlet

I am learning to set up tomcat apache server, does anyone know why we have to enable the invoker servlet?

To enable the invoker servlet, uncomment the following servlet and servlet-mapping elements in install_dir/conf/web.xml. Do not confuse this Apache Tomcat-specific web.xml file with the standard one that goes in the WEB-INF directory of each Web application.

Please enlighten me

Because the invoker is evil. Don't use it.
