I have J2EE installed and I want to learn to develop jsp and servlets. Which would be easier to use Tomcat or J2EE?

It all depends on the eventual application.

If you are eventually deploying your website as a WAR file and the deployment target is an app server such as WebLogic or iPlanet, then you might as well start with and use the J2EE.

But if all you need is 'simple jsp and servlets' then a full-blown app server is not necessary (and neither is a WAR file, at least for Tomcat).

So for development or practice, I'd say Tomcat is easier.
