hi,
if you have jsdk your can run servlet by making use servletrunner, So no need to have server( it create server env ). So you start learing with servletrunner.
Leater when you have some girp over servlet. download tomcat. Which is free. Which is available at http://jakarta.apache.org
All the best.

I recommend that you totally remove JSDK from your system and start with Tomcat. JSDK is two generations out of date and has not been supported by Sun since (as I recall) October 1999. Tomcat includes perfectly satisfactory web server capabilities. If you start with JSDK you will just have to un-learn parts of the API later.
Tomcat can be downloaded free from jakarta.apache.com - it is also part of Sun's new Web Service developer's pack - java.sun.com for free.
Now - can somebody please tell me why people keep thinking in terms of the old JSDK? Especially since Tomcat is plastered all over the official Sun sites.

there are many freely available servet engines.Eg., tomcat from apache and resin2.0 from www.caucho.com. It can also be plugged to apache webserver. resin has good stright forward examples and docs.
I didn't do much work on tomcat4.0, so cant say much about it.
You can also use javawebserver from sun.
GOOD LUCK,
Siva
