I am trying to install any server application over my Win '98 system with 64 MB Ram. I would like to know any compatible server App. so as to run servelets, JSP & EJB. Is it possible if so I would appreciate your advice & help in this regard. Any dowload site or so Thanks a lot, Ganesh C.
With 64 MB RAM you will get a pretty decent servlets & JSP development environment with products like: Tomcat (jakarta.apache.org) Resin (www.caucho.com) I like this one! EJB will very probable need more RAM in order to give you any reasonable speed (at least 128 mb), you can try: jboss (www.jboss.org) Orion (www.orionserver.com) Best of luck!
I am using Tomcat3.1. It is free and good. It supports the lattest servlet and jsp APIS (Servlet2.2 JSP1.1 jdk1.2.2) also and can be installed in WIN 98. What I like is the 'build' tool which comes with it. It is like a 'makefile' which auto compile the new resource files and automatically deploys in the server directory locally and we can easily test the appln using a browser as front end. But it doesnot have auto reload of servlets. But this is not needed when we start. It also can create a ***.war file which is basically ONE ZIP file of our WHOLE appln. THis is useful when we try to upload OR pass it to someone else to host it. I do this practice and found it useful. Since many free servlet/jsp web host services online now-a-days support Tomcat3.1, we can take advantage of this. www.webappcabaret.com is free servlet/jsp web host and has Tomcat3.1 servlet engine.We can develop the web appln locally and deploy it easily online. regds maha anna
