Servlets priority

Hi all
Is it possible to priorities servlets?
I have two different servlets, I want to be able to control which clients handled first.
One of the servlets is more important.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The servlets will be called in the order your program flow decides. If you mean can you prioritise the order in which they load on startup then you can change the loadonstartup tag of the servlet in your web.xml. The lower the figure the earlier the load. Here's an example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<!DOCTYPE web-app PUBLIC "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Web Application
2.2//EN"
    "http://java.sun.com/j2ee/dtds/web-app_2_2.dtd">
<web-app>
 <servlet>
  <servlet-name>deegreewms</servlet-name>
  <servlet-class>org.deegree_impl.enterprise.WMSServlet</servlet-class>
  <init-param>
   <param-name>capabilities</param-name>

<param-value>file:///C:/daten/software/geotools/deegreewms/WEB-INF/xml/sample_wms_capabilities.xml</param-value>

  </init-param>
  <init-param>
   <param-name>debug</param-name>
   <param-value>ERRORS_AND_COMMENTS</param-value>
  </init-param>
  <load-on-startup>
   1
  </load-on-startup>
 </servlet>
 <servlet-mapping>
  <servlet-name>deegreewms</servlet-name>
  <url-pattern>/wms</url-pattern>
 </servlet-mapping>
</web-app>

Am not aware of anything to achieve that, and thinking I'm not sure how you would achive it. Generally client requests are recieved by the server sequentially and each processed seperately, they don't wait for the previous request to be handled.
What is it exactly that you'd like to do instead?
CEHJCommented:
If you're looking for a processing 'pipeline'  methodology/pattern, then a sequence of Struts Action may fit the bill

load-on-startup has nothing to do with priority of client requests.

I hope you or dannysh didn't think that I suggested that ;-)
