Hello..
I have a thread on this forum from couple of months, where i was asking if my site support servlets, and i was advised to ask the server where i purchase my site from, and the answer was no..my site doesnot support servlets.
I asked the server company to transfer my site to another server which runs servlets and they said that they have transfered my account. I saw that there is new apache handler which is server-parsed with .shtml extension.
But there is no tomcat yet.
I googled how to install tomcat using cpanel, the answer was to go to whm panel, but my site doesnot have this whm.
How can i know if my site support servlets or not yet?
Thank you

suppose that the site is transferred to a server that runs java servlets, how can i know that i can now run servlets? Is there any specific icon "cat" of tomcat for example?

.shtml extension is added after the transferring of the site, what does it mean?

Thanks a lot.

Thank you infopro.
according to the link you shared
You can use either the Tomcat or mod_resin addon to serve Java Servlet and Java Server pages with Apache.

These can be enabled in WHM >> cPanel >> Addon Modules
And since i don't have whm i cannot configure java servlets yet.

But if i don't have whm and they transfer my account to a server that runs java servlets, the only way to add java servlets is to have tomcat right?

But until now i don't have tomcat, is it added automatically after transferring to a server that runs servlets, or i have to install it from cpanel some where?

I asked the host and they told me that there is a new folder that i can use for my applications which use tomcat, which is the WEB-INF within the public_html folder.
