I am using Windows Professional, and I have IIS installed. I am reading the book titled Head First Servlets and JSP.
I downloaded the jdk and set the class path and I download jakarta tomcat and set the class path as the book describes.
I then restarted the computer. After starting the tomcat server I tried both http://localhost:8080/
and neither page works.
I read through different sites and some mention turning off IIS and setting up Apache as the web server. Other sites describe setting up IIS to work with Tomcat. I am not sure if I need to do either as the Head First Servlets and JSP book does not detail this step. I would appreciate some advice on which path to choose (intalling apache to work with tomcat or setting up iis to work with tomcat) and details on how to set up tomcat.
