What in fact is the main difference between applets - servlets and JSP's. I know that applets run on the client and servlets and JSP on the server, but what is the functional difference :
each technology is probably more suited for some application area, some architecture, some solution?

hi,
Applets are web-applications, say the client side java which is more interactive than ordinary HTML interfaces.
Servlet is an extension of a webserver, so called. They perform request-response duties and run in the servlet container within the multithreaded server.
JavaServerPages is such technology which integrates java with content and inturn converted back to a servlet.
