Yes, I was thinking that I might be able to hack Tomcat a little and get it
to do what I need, I was worried about artefacts though, seeing as Tomcat is
a larger application. Anyway, I was doing that very thing when this message
came in :)

Yes, the servlet API is HTTP specific... but it shouldn't be, at least not
the generic portion... that's what the http package is for after all. Anyway
its a good API and if I can work around the HTTP specific stuff, I can use
it... and using tomcat as the "parent" app might be good, because eventually
it will be fast. stable and secure... (not to mention well known and
trusted) it also means that I don't have to distribute the whole
application, but plugins to Tomcat.

We'll see how it goes...
