I am using tomcat 5.0 to run my application.

Should i install the complete JDK version in my host machine to run my application?

You need at least a JRE.

If your application is to have JSPs (that are not pre-compiled) you will need a full JDK. JSPs get converted to servlet code and then compiled by the container when they are first accessed.
For this reason, you will need a compiler.

Version 5.5 ships with the JDT compiler (from the Eclipse project) and therefore, only needs a JRE.
