    Java Servlets is a new form of scripting that is gaining popularity because it allows portable server extensions that do not rely on starting external binaries. Servlets are written in Java and compiled to Java byte code before they can be used in a web server.

    In Roxen, Servlets are supported through the Java servlet bridge module, which transforms a Servlet into a Location Module. The Java servlet bridge module can have any number of copies, so any number of Servlets can be installed on a single virtual server.

    To run the Servlet support you need a Pike that has been compiled with Java support. The binary versions of Challenger are not compiled for Java support. To compile a Pike with Java support you have to install JDK 1.2 and then compile Pike. Pike's Java module should detect the Java environment automatically.
