The invoker servlet is completely unnecessary and was only available in
older versions of the spec for backward-compatibility.

The invoker was an idea that should have never made it into the spec in
the first place because it introduces security problems and violates the
principle of least surprise.

The invoker was only ever good for lazy web app designers.

The invoker does /not/ need to be re-build for your project. Instead,
properly map them in web.xml per the specification and rest assured that
you are safer for having done so.
