Comments on: Generic Service – HTML Form Post to Email Servlet Friends of Oracle and Java Thu, 21 May 2015 20:49:51 +0000 hourly 1 By: Lucas Jellema Mon, 10 Apr 2006 20:39:55 +0000 Sam, It is not hugely different, except for a few things:
– it is supported by all browsers, as it does not rely on the widely varying implementation of the mailto action
– it creates – depending on the servlet of course – a nicer email message (not just one long line with all data); an enhanced version of the servlet can even create an XML document in the Email body
– I did not know about the mailto action until you wrote your comment. So thanks for the enlightenment.

best regards,
