If a application server gives a class which will be extended by generated servlet, then why there is extends attribute (either you use it or not extends attribute), application server will generate a servlet which will exetends a class.
From the JSP 1.2 specification regarding the extends attribute of the page directive...
This attribute should not be used without careful
consideration as it restricts the ability of the JSP container to
provide specialized superclasses that may improve on the
quality of rendered service.
