Chapter 2. Inside the Web Tier


This chapter discusses the relationship between the architectural tiers and their roles in an application. Special attention is given to the web tier, which allows an application to communicate and interoperate with clients over the Web. In particular, this chapter focuses on the physical and logical aspects of designing and using a web tier for your applications.

The Struts framework is based on the Java Servlet technology and, to a lesser extent, JavaServer Pages, and therefore is dependent on a web container. For Struts developers, understanding how the web container processes client requests is fundamental to a deeper understanding of the framework itself. This chapter illustrates the various components that are part of the web container and discusses each component's responsibilities.
