Dear All,

I am a beginner in servlets codeing and I need your help on this point....

Can I run the Servlet on the IIS? Or I can only run it on the apache Tomcat

and Macromedia JRun.

Thanks

Andy

This is generally done by connecting Tomcat to IIS.
The connector is an ISAPI filter that passes all Servlet/JSP requests to Tomcat.

Because IIS is not a servlet container. You can say it a web server. So, you can run your servlet in any application server that has servlet container.

However, Ben steered you in right direction.

Microsoft IIS and Tomcat are compatible and its the best way to run servlets from IIS, but its not the easiest installation in the world. Requires a lot of small steps.
