I am totally new to servlets so I'm wondering if people could steer me to some good books or links on the subject. I've written some server side Python programs that interface with a mysql database, and also some java applications. Here is what I'd like to do, but don't know if it can be done for free or if the learning curve is too high:

1. Set up a server or use one that will allow me to run my java programs from a web site. (I'd also like to run the Python programs)
2. Set up an sql database that will interface with the server programs.

Can I somehow use my windows xp box as a server and db?

You'll need to aquire a servlet container.
Tomcat is free, open source, and has good documentation for setting up mysql datasources.

Tomcat does not support Python directly but Jython - the Java interpreter for Python programs is supposed to run on any Java system.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
