Re: <strong>Is C/C++ a server side language programming?</strong>

short answer is no. you are talking about http request-response mechanism that is built into JSPs and Servlets but is not available in C/C++. you could potentially write all the functionality in C/C++ and use servlets/JSPs to simply forward the request to your C/C++ program(s) that you can load via JNI or use some other Java technology (like JMS) to integrate your C/C++ application with the java-based web application. but this is no good unless you are integrating a legacy system written in C/C++ and you cannot rewrite the code for whatever reason. if you are starting from scratch, you should not use C/C++. it is just not well suited for building web applications.
