Hi,
Over at java.sun.com I noticed that Sun have made a point release of the J2EE SDK version 1.3.1. Im currently downloading the linux version for installation. I noticed that in the page:
http://java.sun.com/j2ee/sdk_1.3/index.html
Under the section "Whats New in the J2EE 1.3 Platform" there is the sentence:
The J2EE 1.3 platform includes enhancements to the JavaTM Servlet and JavaServer PagesTM ("JSPTM") technologies with the addition of the Tomcat 4.0 container

Does this mean that I no longer have to download the latest version of Tomcat for JSP development and I can do all of my JSP/Servlet work on J2EE?
Thanks,
Mark

You don't HAVE to have Tomcat 4. In fact, I had to backpedal to Tomcat 3 for technical reasons. You only need Tomcat 4 if you intend to take advantage of features unique to the most recent releases of the Servlet and JSP standards.
If you're referring to the server that was originally bundled with J2EE, I don't think you'll find it in the new package. Sun prefers Tomcat these days.
