Hi All,
I'll deeply appreciate if any one of you Maestros could comment on the detailed difference between JSDK2.1 and JWSDK1.0.1.
Also please sprinkle some project Tomcat sense to top all above.
Thanks.

The JSDK 2.1 is the Java Servlet Development Kit. Version 2.1 is the final version of the development kit before it was incorporated into the JSWDK (Java Server Web Development Kit). The JSWDK version 1.0.1 is the first version to incorporate JavaServer Pages and Java Servlets together into one package. Tomcat is the reference implementation of the JSWDK version 1.0.1 as developed by the Apache Foundation. Sun has released this new version as open source to allow for the Java community to improve and enhance it. Hope this helps.

Hi Toddler,
In simple terms JSDK was primarly for developing Servlets. Sun has come out with JWSDK which can be used for developing Servlets & JSP. So it is better to use JWSDK for developing Servlets & JSP instead of JSDK.

Also, they changed the name to avoid the name clash with the Java Spaces Development Kit, which was also JSDK.
