Hi,

I wanted to write a small password authetication servlet. I am going to do it for the first time and would greatly appreciate inputs on what to download as the server. I downloaded the J2EE 1.4SDK and tried using the appl server, but it wouldn't start (although I set the path). Can somebody suggest a server to download please. Thanks

Tomcat 5 or Orion 2 would be good.
Both are simple to use, highly compliant to the official specs, and free (Orion does carry a fee for commercial deployment but non-commercial, educational, and development work is free).

You can download the EXE file if you want. That is the most user friendly version for Windows. It places links in your start menu for starting/stopping your Tomcat instance. That's probably your best option, especially if you're a novice.
