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 Do I need to re-install a newer version of the SDK to correct my classpath issues first?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
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. Bill
