Servlet is a Perl Servlet API v2.3
The Servlet API for Perl (libservlet) is a formulation of the Java Servlet API in Perl. The current version of the API is 2.3.
While the servlet concept originated with Java, its component model is quite natural for Perl as well. By writing servlet applications and deploying them in a servlet engine, application authors can spare themselves the effort of writing commonly needed web application infrastructure components for each new project.
Furthermore, servlet applications are portable between deployment environments; they can be executed in any servlet engine using any process model with only a few configuration changes and no application code changes. Servlet applications are insulated from changes in vendor or platform and are able to portably take advantage of standard web infrastructure services offered by any servlet engine.
