This section discusses web application entry points for different types of business transactions.
Tiers and Web Application Entry Points
A tier can have multiple entry points.
For example, for Java frameworks a combination of pure Servlets or JSPs, Struts, Web services, Servlet filters, etc. may all co-exist on the same JVM.
The middle-tier components like EJBs and Spring beans are usually not considered entry points because they are normally accessed using either the front-end layers such as Servlets or from classes that invoke background processes.
For details about Java entry points see:
