Stop server, modify class file, run ant, start server.

What would be needed for me to look for in a book.
The same info that can be found in the tomcat docs , but a bit of spoon feeding to me.
When I first started using JSERV , then Tomcat many moons ago the most confusing is the first time geting it up and running.
As a beginner with the server I would love to have
a set up given to me to get my servlet running.
Just take me through the steps, deployment directory structure.
where do I put my HelloWorld.class
What do I set to get it to work in a standalone tomcat
How do I get it to work with apache.
Then as I get my app running need more intimate knowledge memory usuage setting, what and how do I know what my app or apps is using, what to set .
All this available in the Tomcat docs for sure but it is hard to find. If the book had a good index and examples it is well worth the money

Hi Vivek and Welcome,
From the title of this book I assume Apache is Integrated with Tomcat? Does this book cover what versions to use as well as how to integrate the two? This is something I know a lot of people have tried to do (including myself ) for efficiency reasons.
Thanks for your time,

the book mainly concentrates on 4.0 since that aws stable and out at the time and 4.1 was still in beta. Although there are many good things about .1, many companies would not trust it because it hasnt been out long enough for them so it seemed to be right to be more focussed - the 3.x lines we almost entirely ignored because trying to cover both would have made for a very large book, 50% of which would be useless to most people because the two generations are so different and most people deal with only one.
