Tomcat? (ignore last post please)

I've just passed the SCJP exam and am moving onto the SCJD certification.

For SCJP I used Eclipse to test code.

For the SCJD can or should I use Tomcat? I went to the Tomcat download page and it was unclear what exactly I should download then I thought before I go on I should first check with this great forum to see if Tomcat is what I want then ask how to download it from.

Thanks in advance,

The SCJD does not require you to use a servlet container, like Tomcat. In fact, the SCJD really has nothing to do with servlet or web application development - that would be the web component developer, or SCWCD, exam. Perhaps that's what you're interested in doing(?) The SCJD is concerned with measuring your ability in developing applications using the Java 2 Standard Edition (J2SE). Basically, you are required to develop your own cleint/server application, including GUI and database access. In short, there's no use for Tomcat anywhere really.

I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
