I'm a newbie JSP developer. My intention is to have a server to offload my completed JSP projects onto after I develop them on my Mac PowerBook G4.
I'm Java 1.4 certified and have limited experience setting up servers and being an admin.
I have a 1.3 ghz Athalon PC with 1 gig of ram that I want to configure as a development server to host JSP projects that I create using Sun's "Java Studio Creator". I have Windows XP and serveral flavors of Linux that I can use. I'm not sure if using Java Studio Creator limit me to using Sun's "Sun Java System Application Server Platform Edition 8"?
Let me know if you have advise on setting up a simple development server for JSP's...
1) It's far lighter to run than anything from Sun/BEA/Oracle/IBM 2) Everyone has used Tomcat so you have a huge community around to help out 3) It's easy to automate deployment of your applications on Tomcat
