Web server to application interface

A well-defined interface for connecting web applications to web servers is a very powerful thing. This approach has enabled applications written with any Java framework, for example, to be deployed behind and Java server ("servlet container"). Additionally, the standard interface allows the creation of "middleware", or software that sits in between the server and the application. There are many useful applications for middleware (automatic application of site wide styling, caching and sessions, security).
