I'm not sure exactly what you doesnloaded, but it sounds like you downloaded the bits you need to write servlets, but it doesn't actually run them itself. You need a 'servlet container' to run servlets in, like Tomcat.

It's free and it's functional. Not quite up to production standards but great if you want to have a play.

The easiest way I know is to get the standard edition of Java and then download and install Tomcat.
http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat.

It ships with all the j2ee components it needs so you don't need j2ee.
If you get the ".exe" version, the installer will walk you through the entire installation. During the installation, you can choose to install the optional examples applications.

Moving off topic here...
David,
I, and plenty of other people using Tomcat in production environments, would have to respectfully disagree with you. Why do you feel that it's not up to production standards?

(with appologies to madhu gadde, sorry for hijacking your thread)

I've never used Tomcat in production, but that has always been a client decision. They prefer to pay for something and get support for it; it's a safety thing. My view was based on comments from a few people I know who have or are using it to run there production environment, and compared to the various websphere and weblogics I've used it doesn't sound as stable.

Can I ammend my comment to: Tomcat is an excellent resource for learning Servlets, but should be evaluated against other solutions for production systems, depending on your requirements.

Not to further hijack the thread, but to back up Ben: also been using Tomcat for years in a production environment with nary a problem.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
