Oghene you should do the following

1. go to apaches site and download apache tomcat 5.0.28..the exe file for windows

2. install it on your computer

3. make sure that uve installed jdk 1.4 or higher

4. go to control click environmental variables

5. click on new variable and type JAVA_HOME then point its value to the jdk on ur computer

6. Click on new again and type TOMCAT_HOME and point it to the tomcat folder on ur computer. Since i dont like stress i usually domp the jdk folder and the tomcat folder in my c drive

7. Click on start..programs...apache...monitor tomcat
The icon will appear on the bottom of the screen.

8. Right click and start.

Note that all ur jsp projects should go into the webapps folder of the tomcat folder.

And if u dont want to go mad use an IDE like netbeans or borland JBuilder.

Feel free to ask anymore questions.

"oghenekaro EFEKODO", please do everybody's eyes a favor and modify your display name to use mixed case like everyone else. The all uppercase is jarring and distracting.
