Hi,

To run a Servlet or a JSP, you don't need a fully compliant J2EE Application Server, you just need a web container like Tomcat to run a web component ...

Best of luck ...

What problems are you encountering? Is it in compiling or in running the servlets?

As pointed out, you don't need anything more than Tomcat and J2SE.

Firstly i get compilation error due to some HttpServlet related classes. Then i add the classpath variable servlet-api.jar form the tomcat\common\lib\ and the program compiles successfully. But now i get 404 not found error from the browser.
I make these
put Hello.class file into webapps\ex1\WEB-INF\classes\
and make a web.xml file and put it webapps\ex1\WEB-INF\
and from the browser http://localhost:8080/ex1/Hello

It get me the 404 file not found error.
I need to dig it why this happens.
Any advice will be appreciated.

My problem was solved.
It's wordpad related problem.
I edit my web.xml file using wordpad and its add some extra character which give me these trouble.
