when i was reading the core servlets book by marty hall , there it was specified that servlet is designed to handle HTTP requests .
1. i am not clear of what is HTTP request... is that a request generated by web browser or it is something different?
2. and moreover can servlet be used for other request like ftp,mail etc.
