Hi Bill Brogden.
I bought your book..There is no sign of of setingup & running the servlets..You have directly jumped to the examples.If the evn is not set, how can you run....In the introdcution you said..
" I use most of the time free jakarta-Tomacat".
But which one is used in the real time applications....
I have Win NT 4 with IIS 4.0 running.Now which web server i should use, that helps me in real time application development..What you say about Java Web Server...
Can you pls explain which Web server is used in world for runnig Servelets..
Thanks & Regards
Prasad

Depends on your budget, there are several good commercial servers:
WebLogic (probably an overkill)
WebSphere (overkill again)
ServletExec
JRun.

Setting up a server to run servlets and JSP is different for each server. The only thing they have in common is the servlet and JSP APIs which dictate only a few things about directory structure and web.xml parameters.
The java.sun.com web site has a huge list of servlet engines - some stand alone and some that function as add-on.
I suggest starting with the Tomcat server as it is most up-to-date and you get the source code. The Java Web Server JSDK project is out of date.
Most people get Tomcat running easily - it starts and shuts down quickly which is important when you are developing. Just be sure you don't have .jar files on your system that are left over from earlier versions.
The other server I use is JRun - it installs easily as an add-on to IIS. Although the commercial license is not cheap, you can run a developer version - limited number of simultaneous connections - for free and the CDs are widely distributed.
Please feel free to email me directly with any problems.
Bill

Hi,
NOw i have got J2EE..& the built in server is up & running, I think that will serve the purpose....
Thanks for your responses...
If anybody knows any intricate thing should be known to take best advantage of the J2EE pls enrich me with that.
