Gack, sorry -- too terse :-) Tomcat is an open-source servlet container, which is what you need to run JSPs -- <http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/> The mailing list will be helpful: <mailto:tomcat-user-subscribe at jakarta.apache.org> One thing to keep in mind is that there's a lot more to JSP/servlets than just writing in Java -- it's the capabilities of the container, as defined in the servlet spec, that provide a lot of the advantage. Keep a copy of the servlet spec handy to reference: <http://java.sun.com/products/servlet/download.html#specs> And "JDK" is the old term for what's now the "J2SE v 1.4.2_06 SDK", the Java runtime + compiler and associated support files that you'll need to run Tomcat and develop your own JSPs -- get it here: <http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/download.html> And feel free to ask for any further clarification on any of that! later(), -- Hassan Schroeder ----------------------------- hassan at webtuitive.com Webtuitive Design === (+1) 408-938-0567 === http://webtuitive.com dream. code.
