I am new to Java, having worked with visual basic before. I would like to set up a web server to practice using servlets and jsp. What would be the best free web server to download to work with windows 98? Thanks much for any help.
Hi, As u r new to java .You can make use javawebserver2.0 .However this server is not considered to be reliable . It has been observed that sometimes the things which work fine with javawebserver doesnt work at all with other webservers. You can also go for jakarta tomcat or apache with Apache -jserv,or apache with jrun 3.0.

And don't forget Resin (from http://www.caucho.com ) and Jetty (from http://jetty.mortbay.com ). Both are high quality standards-compliant servers with full source code available for free. I personally use Resin, and many people find it faster to use and easier to install and configure than Tomcat. Javawebserver is not really standard enough, so I would not recommend using it. Tomcat is the official reference platform for the Servlet and JSP APIs.
