What is a Java Web Application? This chapter sets out to clarify what is meant in the Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages (JSPs) specification about Web Applications. It introduces the concept of a Web Application, how they are defined, structured, implemented and deployed. It does this using a very simple servlet that displays a welcome message and the current date. In doing so it also introduces the concepts behind servlets and how they work.
