Content Management is a confusing term used in several contexts. In this paper we define content management as the organizing of information (for a specific purpose) available in a system. We present the Mixer Method that uses Servlet Technology and the Model-View-Controller design pattern as a way to accomplish content management in a system. The heart of the Mixer Method is Mixer which is a novel helper tool based on a template engine design philosophy. In order to validate our method we show how to solve the problem of separating Java code and HTML code in Servlet programming. In our opinion the existing solutions are either too complex or not complete. The Mixer Method elegantly decouples the data access code, business logic code, and data presentation. Our work shows that the Mixer Method is easy to learn and to use. We have tested and used the Mixer Method successfully in large university courses dealing with content management and HTTP server side programming.
