Please can somebody help me. I want to learn JSP. So to do that I need apache web server. I had gone to apache.org site for dowmloading apache. But Then I got confused by seeing so many links. & I simply could not know what to download. Please can somebody help me on this. I am giving the link which I visited. http://httpd.apache.org/dist/httpd/ Thanx & Rgds Varsha [This message has been edited by Varsha (edited October 03, 2001).]
Varsha It depends on what operating system you're running. What do you have? and it also depends on whether or not you want to just get the precompiled ' binary' file and install it, or get theactual source code and compile and install it yourself. Also, you don't neccesarily need apache to run jsp pages, if for example you're running WIN2000 or 95 or 98 with personal webserver I'm pretty sure you can just get tomcat to run as a service to the server already installed. I could be wrong on the last part as I'm new to JSP and servlets myself. Dave

Varsha the directions there are correct except for the misspelling in step 2 under 'install tomcat'. You can install tomcat to any directory you like, but like they reccomend it is easier to just use c:\Tomcat. It is much easier to get and install the binaries as they are already compiled - all you have to do is unzip them set the paths and you'll be up and running. In WIN2000 to set your environment variables right click on my computer then click properties then select the advanced tab, then click the environmnet variables button. If you have any other questions let me know

You don't need Apache if you just want to learn J2EE. Apache is a non-Java web server, and it's very useful for a production environment where you have non-Java apps and/or want the higher throughput rate that Apache can give for HTML-only web pages. However if all you're interested in is Java, Tomcat is all you need. http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat
