If I have j2ee installed, but opt to use TomCat in order to develop servlets, I can use tje servlet package from j2ee right? I don't need to adjust things in order to use the servlet package that comes with Tomcat, right?

Well I think all you need to do is to set a classpath to point to j2ee.jar instead of servlet.jar
Please someone correct me if I am wrong.

That's what I figured. I have j2ee already installed. Someone mentioned that if I was just developing servlets for practice and not to upload them onto the web, then it'd probably be easier on Tomcat than on the j2ee server.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
