What are the <CODE><B>minimum</B></CODE> requirements to practice servlets in my modest PC at home? <P> Today I read the first intro article in the latest edition of JavaPro Magazine and the example was almost trivial and it did what an old CGI script would have done. Of course I knew beforehand that this is a characteristic of servlets. To replace old CGI scripts. <P> But it was in Java, which is a (<I>the?</I> ) benefit. <P> It looked like there had to be a Web server involved. Can I get around that? <P> If not, I need a server that does not occupy all of the rest of my hard drive...

I don't know WHY the HTML didn't take on my previous post above. SORRY. Even though, replies will be appreciated just the same. Thank you very much.
HTML is turned off on this forum. As I write this, I can see to the left "HTML is off". But we all get the idea. If you download the JSDK, it comes with some little servlet running utility so you can test your servlets. I have machines with a little punch, so I use Apache and JRun for my servlet stuff. I'm not sure how much space they take up. And this is the stuff that is used to actually serve stuff.
Maybe this is obvious - but I don't get it. What is the difference between JSDK and JWSDK? People here are asking questions about JSDK, however, the Sun website says that we need JWSDK (and not JSDK) : Java Server Pages to download the JWSDK here: http://java.sun.com/products/jsp/download.html For Servlets to download the JSWDK here: http://java.sun.com/products/servlet/download.html Maybe JSDK is the new name for JDK?? If I have JDK1.2.2 does that mean I have the servlet utility "servlet runner" somewhere? I noticed that my servlet books talk about a javax.servlet packages - but these packages do not exist in my javadocs??? Maybe I answered my own questions here, but I appreciate any help I can get. I feel like a person alone in the wilderness. Apparently, I need to download JSDK and get rid of JDK on my computer.???
