Hi All,
Any good explanation for Distributed enviroment? The best way is giving an example in the real life, since the term "Distributed enviroment" is too abstract!
And what is the servlet runing in the distributed enviroment?

Thanks a lot.

How about - A computing system in which tasks are distributed between multiple computers.
The simplest one I can think of is your typical browser-servlet- database configuration where the user's browser may do some JavaScript or applet computing, the servlet computer manages requests and responses and the database computer manages db queries.
One of the characteristics of Java is that it was created with distributed computing in mind.
