Here's my situation, I am running IIS on NT4 and i want to serve JPS's and Servlets. Is it possible to run IIS only to serve these things?
If not what can be done to make it work?
Thanks in advance

i don't think you can use IIS to do it. you need servlet container such as tomcat to redirect requests for jsp and servlets.

You definately need a servlet container. Tomcat can be integrated with IIS and is free. Resin is easily integrated with IIS, but its free license is limited.

Is there any other way to do it without having to plug in a open source program.... The company i am working for refuses to use open source stuff on their network. So is there any work around out there that has been provided.
Don't know if that is a stupid question but it's one worth asking

The commercial JRun works fine as an add-on and you can get a free developer's version. You can also buy a version of Resin.

There are also several other commercial servlet engines you should look into, such as IBM's WebSphere and BEA's WebLogic.
