Servlet Container States

The servlet container is the part of web server which can be run in a separate process. We can classify the servlet container states in three types:

  • Standalone: It is typical Java-based servers in which the servlet container and the web servers are the integral part of a single program. For example:- Tomcat running by itself
  • In-process: It is separated from the web server, because a different program runs within the address space of the main server as a plug-in. For example:- Tomcat running inside the JBoss.
  • Out-of-process: The web server and servlet container are different programs which are run in a different process. For performing the communications between them, web server uses the plug-in provided by the servlet container.

The Servlet Container performs many operations that are given below:

  • Life Cycle Management
  • Multithreaded support
  • Object Pooling
  • Security etc.
