Get a server running locally to run a Struts app

    I need to get a server running locally so I can run my 'Hello World' Java Web app.

    This is the tutorial I'm using. Unless I misunderstand, all I really need to do is copy all the code into flat files with the appropriate filenames - and then compile it with Ant.

    But how do I run it? At some point I'll need to call http : //localhost:8080/hello/HelloWorld

    To compile I'm going to need access to servlet.jar. A search of my drive shows nothing except associated with the Eclipse editor, yet I've got java rle and java sdk installed. I'm obviously missing some component.

    Well if nothing else you should be able to produce a war file. War is like a jar but suited for deploying on a web server. You put the war in the auto-deploy directory of the server, and when the Tomact or whatever Java server you have running it will deploy the web app from the war. Then you can access it. I would advise you to first make a simple JSP(Java Server Pages) appliaction and then go with Struts or some other web framework.
