That's simple. Tomcat from apache.org. The j2ee doc from sun.com. and maybe, some good music.

Hi Patrick,
I think the first step that you can start are
1. Download Tomcat and install it into your machine as web container...
2. Download J2EE tutorial from Sun site J2EE
3. Start coding using this tutorial...

Hope this help

The J2EE tutorial probably isn't the best place to start since it talks about all of J2EE which is much more than just Servlets.

Best visit the JavaRanch bunkhouse and pick out a good Servlets book.

A very good book to start with is the "Apache Tomcat Bible" from Eaves, Jones & Godfrey. It explains how to install the J2SDK, Tomcat, MySQL, Ant and Eclipse. And it has the source code of a web application built following the guidelines of the Model-View-Controller design pattern.

There's another must have : "core servlets and Java Server Pages" from Marty Hall. You can buy the second edition, or you can download the first edition for free in pdf format at Marty Hall's website : www.coreservlets.com.
