One can do what you suggest in a Servlet, but it is not so as simple as you
suggest and, WORSE, it can take too much resources.

Do you develop Web applications?

IF not, try to imagine that:
- You have hundred users at once each doing their own thing;
- Modern sites (as modern customers demand) always allow users to make
really fancy searches over really big amounts of data that have to
be paged trough.

It is not as easy as with normal Windowz apps.

Have fun,
Paulo Gaspar
