    Downloading Java Server


    This is a last resort, after two days of confusing browsing of the sun website,

    How do you download the Java server? (By Java server I mean I want to create JSP's and have Apache with the Jave server module parse them)

    I really feel like an idiot here.

    Thanks in advance,
    Joe.

    Hehe. Well, you've got several options.

    Here's the one from sun: http://java.sun.com/webservices/down...vicespack.html
    It's got Apache Tomcat as the server. This is probably your best bet, but I was unable to get the installer to run on an old win95 box with practically no ram. Go figure, huh?

    You can get Tomcat its self here: http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/index.html
    I've done this on several different boxes, so I can vouch that it works and all.

    I found Tomcat hard to setup at first, so I found Orion Application Server which was a good place to start. I can't get to the website right now for some reason, though: www.orionserver.com/

    JBoss is supposed to be really good. I haven't used it, though. http://www.jboss.org/

    JRun is another option. The developer version is free, but you can only use it as a development environment. http://www.macromedia.com/software/jrun/

    THanks, I'm trying JBoss as I can't download off the sun site with my download manager. (Who uses forms, I mean really?)

    ANd I don't particularily want to waste all that time on dial-up for it to conk-out at 99%.

    NOt that you care about that...

    Thanks again. ^_^
