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,

With 64 MB RAM you will get a pretty decent servlets & JSP development environment with products like:
Tomcat (
Resin ( 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 (
Orion (
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. is free servlet/jsp web host and has Tomcat3.1 servlet engine.We can develop the web appln locally and deploy it easily online.

Hi Maha
tomcat 3.1 has auto reload feature for servlets. But it does not reload automatically when the servlets are in frames. See my other postings regarding this.
