Does JDK has servlet specific classes?

I mean, for staring building web application, do we just need Tomcat (web server) and JDK???

Thanks.

The JDK doesn't. The Servlet API is included in J2EE. But Tomcat ships with a version of Servlets.jar. So yes, all you need is Tomcat and a JDK.

Thank you very much Paul.

And who converts JSP into servlet?

Thanks.

The servlet engine does. But the classes implementing the JSP API are also shipped with Tomcat, so you're good to go.
