Should HTTP traffic go through HTTP.SYS in Microsoft Windows?

Now I realize that Microsoft decided to increase the performance of IIS by creating HTTP.SYS but I want to know if it can handle HTTP traffic for all applications. Here's an example: If I'm using JVM (and its using Winsock to get HTTP traffic) does HTTP.SYS pass the data through the Winsock API? Has Winsock been replaced by HTTP.SYS instead? Thanks for your input.

    The HTTP Server API includes SSL support so that applications can exchange data over secure HTTP connections without IIS. It is also designed to work with I/O completion ports. Server API enables applications to communicate over HTTP without using Microsoft Internet Information Server. Applications can register to receive HTTP requests for particular URLs, receive HTTP requests, and send HTTP responses
