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.
