    What do I need to serve JSP?


    I was looking at the Jakarta project, but that has several files, none of which are called "Jakarta." They were all names of different projects from Apache. What do I need to install to serve JSP pages?

    I do know how to program in Java. I have used Web App Servers such as ColdFusion and Zope. How similar is JSP to the two I've used?

    Thanks.

    You want Tomcat: http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/ which is the application server. You can grab the latest version from here: http://jakarta.apache.org/builds/jak...e/v4.1.24/bin/

    You'll also need a JDK, which you can grab from http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/download.html

    If you download that JDK, you can get the LE version of Tomcat (smaller download).

    Any recommendations for tutorials?

    And I need to have Apache HTTP server already installed, right?

    for tutorials just make a search on Google....you'll find loads of them.

    And no, you don't need apache until you have to serve other apps like php or perl. Tomcat is able to serve static pages as apache does.
    My advice, if you want something more advanced, is to take a look at JBoss (http://www.jboss.org): it adds all J2EE support that Tomcat misses, like EJB, JCA, JMX...

    Another excellent place for you to start is here and then return to the forums when you get stuck!

    But... reading the articles... isn't that cheating?
