Hi all,
I new to servlets and I would like use the Apache Tomcat server. I have the Java servlet programming book and I saw were they had this site jakarta.apache.org as a place to get the web server. But I a little confused about what I need to download or not. Could someone clear this up for me? My os is Windows XP and I have installed SDK 1.3 but I have problems with my classpath. Do I need to re-install a newer version of the SDK to correct my classpath issues first? Please help!
Thanks,
d

We have an Apache/Tomcat forum dedicated to these types of problems. I'll move your thread there for you.

My suggestion is that you first remove the 1.3 SDK and upgrade to the latest 1.4 version, then install either the latest Tomcat 4 or 5. Personally I think the Tomcat 4.1.30 is the most stable, but if you want to use the latest Servlet APIs, that means Tomcat 5.
Take a look at http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/ to get started.
Classpath is only a problem when compiling, Tomcat totally ignores the classpath environment variable.
I seriously recommend that you use Ant for compiling servlet projects in order to get control of classpath issues - there is a bit of a learning curve but it is worth it.
