Eclipse to deploy to IIS web server

Hi all,

I totally understand that this forum is for more experienced users but if some one can sort of help me understand the basics of how this works, it would be very helpful, or please point me to some link where this is explained in detail. Please...

I am new to Java and I am trying to create a new servlet (in an attempt to learn).
I installed Eclipse in my PC. The web server that we have in my work is IIS.
I created a simple servlet code that does not do too much using Eclipse.
I have instructions in my book about how to deploy the servlet and which directory it should be copied to and also adding to the web.xml file.

While I understand this process, I am not sure how to use Eclispse and deploy to the IIS web server?

How do I make eclipse deploy the servlet which is currently in my PC to the NT server (which is where the admin said I should deploy to)?

Many Thanks
Anu Ramesh

I don't think IIS is directly capable of serving Java servlets. Have a look at this article - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q240842/

Vassili, there are perfectly valid reasons for wanting to do this. Please BeNice.

As Rohan mentioned, IIS does not support servlets/JSP. But there are various ways to deploy Java web apps alongside ASP apps on the same server. A free option would be to use Tomcat, a commercial option would be NewAtlanta ServletExec.
