A servlet IS a java class. One which is designed to be run from within a servlet container, like tomcat. At the lowest level, the class must implement the javax.servlet interface. In use most http servlets extend javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet
where access has been provided to the ServletRequest and ServletResponse objects, as well as the PrintWriter (or decendants there of).
