    I want to run java servlets on Linux. I've only briefly used linux before, I've just programmed Java applets/applications in Windows.

    My first problem is what web server do I use? I've looking around and am a bit confused. Which web server would anyone recommend I use?

    Thanks for your help

    Apache. It is rock solid - industrial strength. It comes with most linux distros. You can download the source and compile it if you want to - www.apache.org.

    I'm not a java coder, but from a colleague of mine I heard that the JRun java-engine from Allaire is also available for the linux platform. And it should be good as well, coming with it's own webserver or as an apache add-on.

    I don't quite understand the difference between JServ and Tomcat but Tomcat is the Apache Group's Java container that allows you to run servlets and jsp. It's simple to install and runs well. They just had a major release of 3.2.1. The URL is: http://jakarta.apache.org/.
