Ant is not necessary, though it is a very useful tool that I would not want to be without.

Tomcat comes with extensive documentation.

Tomcat does not support EJBs. (Besides, reserve any research into EJBs until well after you have a good working knowledge of servlets and JSP).

Although ANT has a bit of a learning curve, it is well worth learning. My servlet development environment consists of UltraEdit32 - a programmer's editor that can spawn tasks - including ANT tasks - plus ANT. Each of my servlet projects may take a completely different set of libraries, file locations, etc etc. but once a build.xml is defined for the project I don't have to worry about classpaths, etc.
The basic ANT package is probably all you need.

http://tomcat.apache.org/

The "First App" tutorial under the documentation section of the Tomcat site covers setting up a development environment with ANT.
