Bug#916354: ITP: servlet-api -- Java Servlet API




Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Emmanuel Bourg <ebourg@xxxxxxxxxx>

* Package name    : servlet-api
  Version         : 4.0.1
  Upstream Author : Oracle
* URL             : https://javaee.github.io/servlet-spec/
* License         : Apache-2.0, CDDL-1.1 or GPL-2 with Classpath exception
  Programming Lang: Java
  Description     : Java Servlet API

The Servlet API is the Java platform technology of choice for interacting
with the web. Servlets provide a component-based, platform-independent
method, for building web-based applications generating dynamic content.
Servlets are managed by a container and interact with web clients via a
request/response paradigm.

The Servlet API packages used to be built by the src:tomcat<n> packages.
This is changing with tomcat9 and a new separate package is being
introduced. The package name no longer contains the specification number
to facilitate future migrations to higher versions.

This package will be maintained by the Java Team.
