Hello experts. It seems that I'm confined to using only HTML, javascript and CSS on my blog. Is there any way to make my blog more dynamic by doing some back-end processing? For example, I'd like to use servlets to process user requests.

How can you use servlets if you're confined to using only HTML, JavaScript and CSS?

I said "It seems that I'm confined to using only HTML, javascript and CSS on my blog" because that is my impression. I could be wrong. Am I wrong? Are there blogging websites that allow me to use JSPs and servlets (in addition to HTML, CSS and Javascript) on my blog in order to make it a little more dynamic?

So your question really is "Are there blogging sites that allow the use of JSP and servlets?"?

Yes. That's it. Sorry if I wasn't clear enough.

Although most blogging software is implemented in PHP, Java alternatives certainly exist. Pebble (on SourceForge) is one such implementation.

Whether you can use JSPs, servlets etc. on your current blog depends on what your hosting service provides for you. You should check with them if they support this.

Maybe you've already done this, but before jumping to a "solution," you might want to back up a little and define your requirements: What exactly are you trying to do?

As a first step, I suggest searching your host's help or FAQ pages for tutorials that might guide you. In doing this, search based on your requirements (for example, "create mailing lists") instead of what you think might be a solution (for example, "servlets"). Depending on your host, there might be something already in place that will make it easier for you than developing servlets.
