Hi, what you need is a Servlet Container, which is basically like a web server for servlets. The most popular one is Apache Tomcat, which you can download from the apache site under jakarta. This will com with everything you need, to compile a servlet you need to add the servlet jar file to your class path.

Following what Tim said, Tomcat documentation is excellent. If you have any specific questions let us know.
happy reading

One more vote for Tomcat here. Very excellent product.
I'd also suggest reading something like this book to get a very good understanding of Servlets.
One more thing, I suggest you learn the Servlet Spec/API first. If you later want to learn a framework (STRUTS, WebWork, Turbine, etc...), then you can do that also. Since all of these sit on top of the Servlet API, you are always better off knowing it first, in my opinion.
Good luck.

Just a reminder that I have a summary of the key points of several free servlet/JSP containers in my shoosing a servlet container page.
