Tomcat doesn't actually support the full compliment of J2EE technologies, rather it's a JSP/servlet container. To build applications with Tomcat, you'll need to put the servlet and JSP APIs into your CLASSPATH. If you have Tomcat 4, these can be found in $TOMCAT_HOME/common/lib/servlet.jar.
By the way, welcome to JavaRanch but could you just take a quick look at the naming policy and edit your profile.
Also, only members with valid names will be eligible for the book giveaways.
Thanks

Yes, if you want to build servlet/JSP applications. If you want to build J2EE applications with technologies such as EJB, JMS, etc then you'll need a different server such as JBoss.
AFAIK, most servlet/JSP books contain information about setting the classpath.
