go to http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/download.html
then click on Download J2SE JRE to download j2se with java run time environment. Then download Apache Tomcat

Hi,

Install the apache_tomcat.exe if you have in your local drives eg:c:\Tomcat5.0 ,then go to the webapps folder and create a folder of yourself and create the folder as I have shown c:\Tomcat5.0\webapps\Your Folder\WEB-INF\classes ,then place your source files in WEB-INF folder ,complile your src files to classes file,after that place the jsp and html and other image files outside the WEB-INF folder and configure web.xml to your folder,and copy that to your folder .....thats it now you can run your application by starting the server and Internet Explorer...

hi sangamesh,
can u plz explain me abt creating the WEB-INF folder,copting the source files and configuring the web.xml file..

thanks in advance,
vysh..

this how the way ..

C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.0\webapps\ROOT
then put ur files u want .. but if u want to put it in folder u need to put the web-inf inside this folder ,, u will find this web-inf in the root folder just copy and paste it on the folder ..

when u will use tomcat.. there is 2 ways .. if u just put ur files in ROOT then u just write

http://localhost:8080(u have to check ur host num maybe its 8081)/(write the html )

eg. http://localhost:8080/dbinsert.html

the 2nd way if its in a folder and u named example the folder "me" the it will be like this

http://localhost:8080/me/dbinsert.html


:)

whatever happened to reading the documentation and some tutorials?
Every question here is answered in full in the Tomcat documentation and examples.

If you can't understand those there's no way you're going to understand having it explained by people here.
And if you can't be bothered to read those and so help yourself why should we bother to help you?
