Hello everyone, I would like to get started in JSP's and Servlets. I am a total newbie to this and don't even know where to start. I will be using JDK 1.3 and Apache as my web server. Can somebody point me in the right direction? Thank you!
I am a newbee too. First you have to download and install Tomcat from the Jakarta (sp?) website (I tried the Sun jsdk first but it was not as easy as Tomcat). A good tutorial to get a servlet up and running is the Sun tutorial: servlet section.
I used the following article when installing Tomcat: http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/ct/33 It provided a nice guide with screen shots for installing Tomcat. Once you get Tomcat installed, check out the examples provided. Then, I would recommend a good book with plenty of examples. The one I used was "Professional Java Server Programming J2EE Edition", which is published by Wrox Press. It not only covers JSPs and Servlets, but a bunch of other J2EE topics. I thought the JSP and Servlet chapters had some nice examples. Here's a link: Book listing on Amazon Hope this helps! Chris
