jsp for IIS

P: n/a
nos
I want to start learning about jsp, but I
have no access to a server (got laid off).
I just discovered my laptop has ability
to install IIS (win xp pro). How can I
set up jsp to work with IIS. I would like
servlets too if that is not part of jsp.
TIA

Forget IIS. JSP/Servlets are perfectly supported by free Java-only servlet
containers like Tomcat or Jetty. Tomcat is widely used and can de dowloaded
from the Apache website. I personally prefer Jetty because it is more
lightweight and faster. The mailing lists offer very good and prompt support
on all levels. Jetty can be downloaded from http://www.mortbay.org.

Servlet containers can serve static content also but for huge loads I would
recommend Apache.

I agree, but im using Tomcat- just because thats what i started with.
I suggest a setup similar to that ive used for learning. All it needs is an
old pentium for the server and a network cable connecting to the regular pc-
for the server im using an old P166 with linux, Apache, MySQL, j2sdk1.4, and
Tomcat. This has worked well for jsp pages, servlets and beans. All the
software is free open source

and that on a good day
