I have pre-existing servlet code for maintenance purposes.

It received a request by POST action from the client. This class also has main() method where class is instasiated and processed.

Can anyone help me understand reason for having dopost and main() methods.

servlet can have a dopost method and main method.dopost is called when u invoke the url of the servlet.Servlet is called by webserver.So dopost method can be called only by webserver/appserver.If u have a main method in the servlet u can't call doposT.Even if u call request response may not be valid.

There can be no logical reason for this type for code excpt for some testing(i guess)
