hello all,

im a newbie in JSP, and wishes to understand it. What would i need for me to use JSP, what should i install in my PC, im actually running Windows98 as my OS. i have read some of posted topics and some websites, they recommend installing a Web Server and JDK, well i have a JDK1.4.1. Regarding the web server , what should i use, shall i use a TOMCAT or BLAZIX server.
Any help will be appreciated.
PS. is there a great web site tutorial for JSP? thanks again.
Cyrus,

Cyrus-
You just need Tomcat. That's it.
Since you're new to JSP, I'd recommend you to read a little bit and understand how everything works (where to put the JSPs, where to put servlets-if you need any-, how to install tomcat, how to start it, etc).
follow this and read all the sublinks in the "tomcat user guide" area. If you still find it difficult to run or have any doubts, let us know

secure on a microsoft operating system is a bit of an oxymoron (or whatever) lol.
win98 will do fine to run tomcat. i'm presuming your using it for development and not a reallife webserver?
if you want the latest and greated jsp feature but aren't worried about the stability of the server get tomcat 5 .exe binary
http://ftp.plig.net/pub/apache/dist/jakarta/tomcat-5/v5.0.14-beta/bin/jakarta-tomcat-5.0.14.exe
if you want a stable release get tomcat 4 .exe binary
http://ftp.plig.net/pub/apache/dist/jakarta/tomcat-4/v4.1.29/bin/jakarta-tomcat-4.1.29.exe
please make sure you have Java SDK installed first

Hello all,

its been a while since my last posting, i have another question, which database should i use : (MySQL, PostGre, Access).

i wish to develop a simple web application, such as a simple registration form or even an ordering form.

Any idea on VELOCITY?

thanks all.

Cyrus, I would recommend either mySQL or PostreSQL. I've had good luck with both.
Velocity is probably better discussed in the Web Application Frameworks forum.
