i have tomacat installed. its working fine since i am able to start and stop though haven't registered any application. i have jdk1.1.8 installed. I have a servlet to be registered in tomcat, but servlet wouldn't compile. gives error javax.servlet not found. I understand that i need to download JSDK for that. what confuses me is that tomcat has its own servlet/JSP container. and servlet.jar is in my classpath. So do i still need to download JSDK. pls. explain

Forget about the JSDK!
Download the latest version of TOMCAT.
If you prefer virtual hosts, they are supported by this pre-release version:
http://jakarta.apache.org/builds/jakarta-tomcat/release/v3.3-m3/bin/

If you are getting "error javax.servlet not found." it is just a classpath problem. Never mix old JSDK with newer version of Tomcat - I spent days tracking down a problem due to this.
If you are stuck with JDK 1.1.8 - don't try Tomcat 4.0 - I think it requires JDK 1.2 or higher

thanks Tony and Bill
I downloaded tomcat from the site given by Tony. For JDK, i could not identify the right file. There was JDK 1.1, but there was no JDK 1.2 though there was Java RunTime 1.2, JRE 1.3, and Java 2 Standard edition 1.2, Java 2 Standard Edition 1.3. Which one shall i download. Tony was referring to JSDK, is this JSDK same as i mentioned above ie Java 2 Standard Edition. or is it Java Servlet Development kit.
thanks

Go with Java 2 Standard Edition 1.3. Sun used to refer to the JDK, then they switched to SDK 1.3 and Java 2 Standard Edition so you will see these terms all mixed up.
Some pages on Sun sites (and us old-timers) still refer to JDK.
There are also a bunch of acronyms floating around for the old Java Web Server, Java Web Server Development Kit and other permutations....

If you are using MSIE browser, you need to turn off the "friendly" messages so you can get more informative messages.
tools -> internet Options ->advanced
make sure "friendly HTTP error messages" is not checked.
