No. It needs to be at least servlet container like Tomcat (which, incidentally, contains all jar files that one would need to develop servlets).

You need Tomcat, nothing else. It contains the servlet-api.jar file which you need in your classpath to compile servlets. The Tomcat site contains ample documentation on how to get started, and it comes with servlet and JSP examples.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
