This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
Actually, the most appropriate place to ask would be the Apache/Tomcat forum. Setting up httpd.conf isn't going to help you. Apache can't serve JSPs - unless you idea of "serving" is to return the raw JSP text rather than to execute it! Instead you have to set up a pipeline so that JSP requests get forwarded to a JSP server such as Tomcat. Which is a lot more difficult than it ought to be - there are probably about 5 different ways to set this mechanism up and at any given time, the one I want always seems to be underdocumented or broken. Start by reading the "Tomcat-Apache HOWTO" for the version of Tomcat you're interested in. If you're not familiar with Tomcat (or a similar server such as Jetty), you'll need to learn.
