Hi,
Can anybody suggest me some open source application servers with developer guide(b'cos JBoss is available for free but they r charging for developer guide)?
Also i hv some queries regarding J2EE(j2sdkee1.2.1)?
a) Can we use servlet & JSP in a WAR component thro' the deployment tool? if yes how? if no, is it supported in j2sdkee1.3?
b) Can we use more than servlet or JSP in a WAR component thro' the deployment tool? if yes how? if no, is it supported in j2sdkee1.3?
c) what r the welcome files mentioned in deployment tool wizard for WAR components?
Awaiting immediate help!
Thanks in advance.
Regards,
M.Ravi

You've got a list of free app server on : http://www.jmiddleware.com/ejb_links_page.html
I've never reviewed them nor checked if there is some free documentation.

I don't quite understand what you're asking in A and B of your question, but I believe this is what you're askig about in part C:

The welcome-file-list "contains an ordered list of welcome file elements." The welcome-file "contains file name to use as a default welcome file" -- in the example above if you called the application 'http://localhost/myWebApp/' without specifying a particular page, it would load index.html (if one was present in your app), or if that was not present, it would load index.jsp.

The JBoss developer guide is only 10 dollars -- just buy it (or read docs online).

Hi,
Jessica, thank u for the answer. I am elaborating the question a & b here:
In the deployment tool (j2sdkee1.2.1), we are able to use either servlet or jsp in the WAR component and not both, am i right? why is it so? Is it not that WAR component can contain both servlets and jsp files?
And also can't we add more than 1 jsp in a WAR component thro' the deployment tool?
Hope i am clear.
James, thanks for ur advice too. But why to spend when something equal is for free?

To be honest I haven't used the deployment tool to build a WAR file -- but there's no reason why a Web Application can't have both a JSP and a Servlet -- why not just create the files manually? JSP's should go in the root directory, Servlets should go in the /WEB-INF/classes directory (complete with all their packages).
-- If you download the HP-Application Server the Developer's guide has quite an extensive explanation of Web Applications and how they can be constructed and deployed.

Please note that we have a naming standard at JavaRanch. You must use your real name (first name - space - last name).
