JSP but no Servlet allowed - possible?
Posted on 2011-02-25
I have a small shared hosting plan and I am able to run JSP pages without any problem. I'd like to add some Java Servlets but I was told that this isn't possible on my share host for security reasons.
Am I missing something or aren't JSP pages 'compiled' to servlets themselves? Does this possibly make sense. Obviously I'm relatively new to JSP and Java servlets but this seems strange to me.
Is there anyway I could test this for myself on my accounts? (ie. test if servlets do infact work)
Note: Apache tomcat 5.5 (I believe)
Aslo, one of the reasons I'm asking is becasue I'm not sure the support group was confident in their answer. The security claim seemed to be a brush off as I told them I was just setting this up for testing purposes.
