Hi,
I am new to Servlets. I want to download Java Servlet Development Kit. But I could not find it in java.sun.com. May be I am looking at wrong location. Could some body help me to locate JSDK? I want to run some Servlets programs at home. Please help.
Thanks

Instead of the JSDK I would recommend that you download tomcat. Tomcat is the supported version. It is quite easy to set up and supports servlets and jsp. You can get it at http://jakarta.apache.org Tomcat 3.2 is available for download at their site.

I hope its helps, feel free to email me noahcarroll@juno.com

What exactly is the JSKD? I've just downloaded it because I think I was missing some jar files, and they seem to be included with it. I was trying to import javax.servlet.* but I was getting errors when I tried compiling, saying it didn't know what it was.

From the sun site:
Question:
According to the JSDK 2.0 Readme file the servlet development environment is included with JDK 1.2. However I tried to compile a simple program and the compiler can't find the servlet classes such as javax.servlet.* Is there something I missed when I installed JDK 1.2?
Answer:
The javax.servlet classes have been taken out of the JDK 1.2 product since the Relase 1.2, Beta 3.
If you have the most recent JSDK, the javax.servlet and javax.servlet.http classes should be in {JSDK2.0}/lib/jsdk.jar. Just add this jar file to your CLASSPATH.
