Servlet API

Jakarta Servlet API provides a framework for Java developers to create dynamic web content. Whether you're serving up a simple webpage or managing a complex online platform, this API has got your back.

So, we've talked about the Jakarta Servlet API, but let's take a closer look at the Jakarta Servlet package itself. Inside this package, you'll find everything you need to create, manage, and manipulate Servlets – those dynamic components that handle requests and generate responses in your web applications.

You have a toolbox, and inside, you've got all the tools you need to build something awesome. Well, the Jakarta Servlet package is your virtual toolbox for web development.

Here's a sneak peek at what you'll find inside:

  1. Servlet Interface: This is like the blueprint for all Servlets. It defines the methods that every Servlet must implement to handle requests and produce responses.

  2. HttpServletRequest and HttpServletResponse Classes: These are like messengers that carry requests from clients to your Servlet and deliver responses back. They provide handy methods to access request parameters, headers, and cookies, as well as to set response status codes and content.

  3. GenericServlet Class: This is a convenient base class for Servlets that provides default implementations for some Servlet methods. It's like a helper that saves you time and effort when creating new Servlets.

  4. HttpServlet Class: This extends GenericServlet and adds specific methods for handling HTTP requests like GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, etc. It's your go-to class for building Servlets that respond to HTTP requests.

  5. ServletRequest and ServletResponse Interfaces: These are the parent interfaces for HttpServletRequest and HttpServletResponse, providing a generic way to handle requests and responses without tying your code to specific protocols.

And that's just the tip of the iceberg! The Jakarta Servlet package is packed with even more goodies to explore and use in your web development adventures.
