Do you think this is a bit too jargon-heavy for lay readers such as myself, rather than those with prior experience of such matters? 194.73.118.78 13:57, 1 August 2006 (UTC)

  • I agree, I think its got a little too much Sun Hype/Biz Speak in it, I'd like to see it in more down to earth web-server'ish terms if possible. 218.214.138.11 06:37, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

PHP[edit]

Is it correct to put PHP in a list with CGI and ASP? PHP scripts may be invoked in CGI, but, generally, PHP is a language, not a technology or something like that... or am I wrong?--VictorAnyakin 08:14, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

PHP is CGI, but it can be embedded in HTML, instead of the "echoing" of "normal" CGI. It is really only cosmetics for humans, you know. :)
  • Sorry but that's completely incorrect. PHP is an independant subsystem, exactly like jsp (and considerably easier to use in my opinion). I find its clumping with CGI a bit jarring, and its peering with ASP very jarring - ASP only works on one platform (actually not true, some maniacs backported it into Apache, nobody knows why), PHP - and don't forget mod_python ! - works pretty much on everything.

Yes i too think servlets are useless in this world.. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 210.212.192.18 (talk) 02:50, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

Missing References[edit]

There isn't a single reference for this article. Could someone please help out with this? I imagine much of the information in this article can be gleaned from the Sun specification and documentation docs under the product page for java servlet technology--weezology (talk) 00:31, 14 October 2009 (UTC)

Equivalence of CGI and ASP.NET[edit]

Non-Java dynamic content. That's not to say non-dynamic content. It's just that Java is the exclusive property of Sun. Microsoft offered Java for a while until they were overwhelmed with a desire to modify the Java standard, thereby violating their contract with Sun. Hence, Microsoft offers little in the way of Java. --173.66.64.90 (talk) 18:12, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

What is "A Servlet"?[edit]

The article uses the word servlet in capitalised form. Is this a short form for "Java Servlet"? I think that it should not be capitalised at all, as you can see here. Sae1962 (talk) 14:40, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

JSP container?[edit]

JSP container redirects to this article. Why? What is it? --Abdull (talk) 19:11, 26 June 2011 (UTC)

Changed. Now JSP container redirects to JavaServer Pages. 77.6.237.100 (talk) 15:36, 11 May 2012 (UTC)

"Java Servlet" or "Java servlet"?[edit]

Shouldn't it be "Java servlet" instead of "Java Servlet"? --Mortense (talk) 13:11, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

No. [1] Nor are they "a sort of Applet" Andy Dingley (talk) 20:06, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

Why is there a diagram of a JSP file lifetime?[edit]

What's JSP and why is there a diagram of its lifetime in the intro? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 193.13.114.130 (talk) 18:42, 13 February 2014 (UTC)
