I am studying a book on servlets. Can anybody help me with two clarifications ... 1.A servlet is a java class that can be loaded dynamically to expand the functionality of a server. Please simplify? 2.Servlets operate solely within the domain of the server. Please clarify? Thanks Rajeev
Those seem to be rather general statements and depend strongly on the context. My attempt to summarize both of them would be: Servlets objects are threads running within server's memory space. 1. Refers to functionality of the servlet class. I am not sure about 2. it might mean that they ran in server mem space and that is all they can access but what about RMI,CORBA,DCE etc? Hope that helps.
Thanks, the things are getting clearer. But you mentioned about RMI and CORBA stuff. What was the question in your mind when you noted them down so that I may think relatively when i come through RMI and CORBA? Rajeev
