There are no problems using ozone from a servlet. You can use ozone in servlets
just like in 'normal' programs.

I don't fully understand what do you mean with: calling an ozone _client_ from
a servlet. The sevlet itself is the ozone client.

There is only one think regarding ozone and servlets. You should not open a
transaction that spawn more than one HTTP request. For this you would have to
integrate an transaction manager like it is done in Prowler. But this is
probably no limitation and therefore not needed in your case.
