Really?! Not being familiar with the history of PLT scheme I have to say I am surprised by the answer - I would have thought module is an older concept. Sounds like you are saying unit is slowly fading away? <br><br>Can module based servlets be loaded/unloaded on demand like unit-based servlets? And would badly written module servlet bring down the server? Unit servlets appear to handle the above fine, but if module servlet also works, then I am not sure if there are discernible differences (although there are still more unit-servlet examples in the doc).

I suspect that most everyone wants to use module servlets these days,<br>not unit servlets. Once upon a time, we didn't have modules (and<br>servlets existed at that time), so we used units. Nowadays, modules<br>work much better with all of our other tools (like the compiler, for
<br>example, but also the module browser and things like that), that you<br>really want your program to be in a module.<br><br>That said, of course, if your program calls for the power of units,<br>use the units inside the module!
