This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I'm currently doing the the Cattle Drive here at the JavaRanch. In order to complete the Servlet assignments there, they recommend the Orion server. See the CattleDrive / Servlet Assignment 1. I was able to pull it down and install it with no problems (just follow the directions). Runs great for local testing of servlets for me. rick
I would just like to put in a plug for Caucho's Resin. It supports Servlet 2.3/JSP 2.2 specs, has great xml support and other extremely handy features like auto-compilation of servlets and beans. BTW, on my system at home I have Resin, Tomcat 4, Macromedia's JRun and New Atlanta's ServletExec and they all have their respective nice features.
