Hello Frdz,

This is my first post so help you all do help me..

I am new to your forum as well as to servlets..

From the books i came to know that Tomcat and JDK are used for running the servlet applications..

I am using Win-7 OS of 64bit.

Can anyone get me the link of JDK and JRE latest version which can be installed for win-7 64bit. I already got the tomcat. I am confused of different java (i mean JSDK,JDK,J2EE etc.). Which can be used for servlets??

Also let me know where is to be installed i mean whether to choose Program files or Program files (x86) the default one..

I am too confused by searching on..\

Thanks in adv..Help at earliest my providing the download link

Go to the default download site (http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html). Click one of the download buttons; you can then select the platform, which should be Windows x64 for 64-bit.

As to where to install:
- on 32-bit Windows everything goes into "Program Files"
- on 64-bit Windows, 32-bit programs go into "Program Files (x86)"
- on 64-bit Windows, 64-bit programs go into "Program Files"

The default locations are usually good.

First install Java (I believe the JRE is enough but I always go for the JDK instead), then Tomcat. That should work; it's what I've done on several servers at work already.
