Subject Re: In-process connector?
Date Wed, 17 Sep 2008 17:02:09 GMT
I guess I should clarify.

I want Java code to do in-process requests to JSPs (etc) for HTML.

This shouldn't involve sockets or JNI -- just a plain simple mechanism 
to take ServletRequest/HttpServletRequest and 
ServletResponse/HttpServletResponse objects and toss these (in process) 
at Tomcat and let it pass these to the normal FilterChain, etc, with the 
output written to the response stream/writer.  Nothing terribly fancy, 
but this would allow in-process use of JSPs to generate HTML for various 
non-browser purposes.  Otherwise one is stuck with the unnecessary 
dichotomy of generating browser HTML one way and all other HTML some 
other way -- unless one forgoes any technology, like JSP, that relies on 
the servlet API.
