I am new to Servlets. I want to know what set up is needed ie. Web server, os (weather 95 or NT) to start learning Servlets,EJB and JSP and other stuff. Please help me.

I too am pretty new to Servlets and the like. But I think that the setup is OS independent. What you need is a webserver..anyone will do..try using tomcat..it is the easiest one to use and can be freely downloaded. Tomcat requires a small configuration in its Tomcat.bat file to set the path of jdk on ur system. Also it would help to get hold of a decent starter book on the topic.


Hope this helps. Correct me if I am wrong.<p>Cheers <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> ,<br />Kapil

If you have trouble getting Tomcat started, many people consider Resin (from http://www.caucho.com/ easier to configure and use. Both Tomcat and Resin track the official Servlet and JSP APIs very closely, so any good servlets/JSP book or the downloaded Servlet API documents from Sun should be useful.

Hi Frank,
I just now downloaded Resin. The server was up in seconds. I am planning to some sample proj using resin server. Can you let me how good Resin compares with others like Tomcat,JSDK etc.

I am also another resin advocate . Resin is also pretty much done with the Servlet 2.2 and JSP 1.1 spec, where Tomcat is still in the works (i believe). Resin is also optimized for speed, it seems pretty quick as a servlet runner. But note, there are SOME resin-specific stuff (The Authenticator can be custom, etc).
For EJB you can try jboss.org, they have nice licensing for developers (free i think).
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
