Hi,
Can someone give me a 101 on building a basic servlet container that could deliver static web pages or run servlets. I am looking for some pointers that I can follow while writing program for a servlet container.

Probably try looking at the source code of the existing open source servlet containers like Tomcat: http://tomcat.apache.org

For static web pages, it is fairly simple. You need to create a TCP listener which receives the requests from users and delivers the pages after reading from a directory.

Create server socket - http://www.exampledepot.com/egs/java.net/CreateServerSocket.html

Handle the request in another thread - http://www.exampledepot.com/egs/java.lang/BasicThread.html?l=rel

Reading from a file -

Sending contents back to the client socket - http://www.exampledepot.com/egs/java.net/WriteTextToSocket.html

Mayankeagle,
I was able to generate static web pages based on your idea.
Any ideas about how to run servlets ?

You need a servlet container for that - look at the source code of one of the open source containers.
