Any guesses as to why HttpServet class is abstract ?
None of the methods in the class are abstract. So why is the class abstract.
Is it bcos we shudnt instantiate the class ?

I guess that HttpServlet class was made an abstract since it is not much use on it own.

You need to overwrite one method (normally doGet or doPost or both)
