people said:" doPost --- used to transfer client information to the server doPut --- used to provide a new or replacement document to be stored on the server ".
what the problem is , doPost still can store data on the server, for example, use serialized bean or database.
please correct me.

A PUT request is used to publish a resource on a server and associate it with the Request URI. Eg. Suppose a file new.html is PUT on a server using the request URI http://www.testserver/old.html, the server stores new.html in the file system and associates 'http://www.testserver/old.html' to new.html The file name is independent of the associated URI.
POST is used to transfer data to the server for processing.
