sorry for that stupid question...
i mean, are any java web frameworks based on the servlet standard in a way?
if not, what's the difference?
propably there are "true" servlet based frameworks, others not?

cheers!

I know of none that aren't. What is it that you are really asking? I'm not sure.

All JEE Web frameworks are based on servlet technology. Even a .jsp gets transformed into a servlet at compilation time.

i was just wondering if there are approaches of web frameworks that don't create a layer on top of the servlet standard.

i wasn't sure if it is correct to say that every web framework is in fact a customization of a servlet or if there are further ways of configuring web.xml that differ from the servlet specification.

Eric,
Servlets are THE standard. I can't imagine one that doesn't use at least one servlet.

Let's say that any J2EE web container (Tomcat, Glassfish, JBOSS....) is a servlet container. So, if anybody wants to reinvent the wheel and to implement a new container that deals with something, but not servlet (actually, that something will have the same functionality and "interface"), go ahead!
