Hi,,,
I am new to servlets and I was willing to work on it. But I just want to know what to install to run the servlets.
My system just has Jbuilder 6.0 in it. To run the servlets what are the software to be installed and how to run it. I tried to install JSDK and installed jdk too. It is quite confusing to me. Please help me run the programs on servlets.
As I am a novice please guide me step by step what to install and how to set the path.
Thanking you guys...

The current reference implementation of the Servlet API is Tomcat. You can get it from http://jakarta.apache.org/. Look for Tomcat under the subprojects list on the left of the page.
Once you've got Tomcat, install it, and then place compliant web applications in a war file in the Tomcat subdirectory called webapps... or place an extracted directory tree there. There are other options as well, such as manually configuring a different location in Tomcat's server.xml file.
Sounds like you're looking at a few older pieces of software. Is there a reason you want to learn with something older? If you're restricted to an older servlet API version by your server environment, for example, you may want to develop or test against an older container. Unless you've got a good reason, though, Tomcat is the way to go.
