I am putting Tomcat 6.0.16 on a Windows web server. I know I need to have JRE on it. But if this is the production server with no development on it, do I need to have a JDK (such as JDK 1.6) on the server? I assume I only need a JDK in our development environment only?

Other question is do I have to have JRE 1.6 running on the server with Tomcat 6? I currently have JRE 1.4 on this Windows web server. I assume Tomcat 6 will not run properly with JRE 1.4?

1.) No.
Starting with version 5.5, Tomcat ships with it's own compiler (JDT from the Eclipse group) which means that it no longer requires a full JDK.

2.)
You need JSE 5.0 or better to run Tomcat 6.

Thanks, Is JSE the same as JRE?

Java Standard Edition.
Yes, the JSE contains the JRE (Java Runtime Environment).

If you have JRE 1.5 on your machine, you can run Tomcat 6.
