The concept that used to be referred to as servlet "chaining" has been replaced with "Filters" as of the servlet 2.3 API. The main disadvantages as I see it:
1. Complex - more APIs
2. Slower than a single servlet
Advantages:
1. Flexibility
2. Better separation of functions and potential for using library components.
