What is the Diffrence between Servlet Engine And Servlet Container ?
most of the times these are used interchangeably. but if you want to really get into the guts of the things, you must look at the architecture of an application server, which not only supports servlets but also a host of other specifics such as ejbs, jsps and all that. in this mileu, i guess you can understand when something is called a servlet container, perhaps the code that initiates the servlet. the engine as such is responsible for everything else including scaling and multithreading
