Yes, if you use Microsoft's JVM. There's an article here which might help.

Huh? You would still need a servlet container (Tomcat) to actually process the JSP/Servlet requests. You can use IIS for static content and have it forward JSP/Servlet requests to something like Tomcat, but pure IIS does not know what to do with JSP/Servlets.

Sorry the url I gave was faulty (I'll try again). Apparently, it can be done, though its far from perfect.

A more helpful response might be: yes it can be done, but don't bother; it's not worth the effort. Just use Tomcat.

My first reaction was the same as Gregg: 'Huh?'

The simplicity of the solution in using the Adapter design pattern is quite impressive.
