I'm not suggesting to throw the "old" (i'll have to throw myself :)).

However please refer to the excellent paper on servlets in
http://www.as400.ibm.com/developer/java/documents/servlet1.html which
includes the following:

servlets are:
Often Faster than CGI

Servlets Run in the Same Process as the Web Server

Automatic Parsing and Data Translation of Headers and Parameters

Data Caching

Advantages of Java Itself(and there are some :))

So it's not just "young" it is also better (oop's wrong word..).
