Title: JSP?
Post by: jdstroy on May 31, 2006, 03:31:11 AM
Is there any chance that we could get a JSP engine, perhaps?  You know, like Apache Tomcat5, or JBoss...?  Perhaps?  =)  I use PHP quite a lot, but I prefer Java much more, and I'm more familiar with it....

Umm, no... that would be a _big_ security issue, and/or it would kill the server resources.  I could write a simple class to kill the server resources right now:

public class MainTrouble implements Runnable {
public MainTrouble() {
}
public void run() {
while(true) {
// do not yield or sleep
}
}
public static void Main(String[] args) {
while (true) {
Thread t = new Thread(new MainTrouble());
t.start();
}
}
}

// this class will cause many loop threads to be started that do nothing and consume processor time.  not good.

If you're looking for battle hosting, try looking for a shell server and/or a virtual server.  Too much trouble for webhosts.

What I'm asking for is just another server-side engine to parse Java Server Pages.  It's like working with ASP or PHP.

Hmm nah that's not really what I'm talkign about. I think what I was thinking of is just a simple javascript battle system.

Basically I have a PHP RPG thing I made but battling page by page is ubber lame so I wanted something that at least didn't involve refreshing. There _was_ a javascript battling system made for soem weird forum but I'm bad a javasctip and didn't know how to edit iit.

We do not currently plan to offer JSP support.
You can create a Javascript to refresh the page, or use meta refresh.

In that case, Java isn't required at all on the server.  You could, though, load an applet instead (which can be done here), or you could power the RPG frontend with AJAX (no refresh! sweet!) or related technologies. (Drive the rest of the page with DOM.)  Any of the the XmlHttp, IFRAME, IMG, or SCRIPT family of AJAX requests could be a possibility.  (Although AJAX may be appealing, I'm a critic of it because it poses many issues.  See the Wikipedia article.  Not to mention, AJAX isn't half as powerful as a normal desktop client.  Try running the Huffman encoder in JavaScript sometime.)
