In order to run servlets you need to obtain a servlet engine like Tomcat, Sun One Server, etc. I would highly recommend using Tomcat. You would get your questions better answered if you move this topic to the Tomcat forum. If you install Tomcat just make sure you have your enviromental variable JAVA_HOME defined. You will also need J2EE version and not the J2SE of Java. I believe J2EE comes packaged with Sun One Server. Regards, Ryan
