What's the best SERVLET ENGINE





mike1reynolds
I'm trying to write an app to connect a cell phone to an SQL db. J2ME apps can't directly connect to SQL, so I need to write an SQL servlet that the cell phone app will access, but I know nothing about servlets and servlet engines.

Here is an interesting link that I've found: http://www.purpletech.com/servlet-faq


But this gives a plethora of undistilled information, it doesn't compare and contrast all of the many different options available.[/b]

I suggest you start with tomcat. It is very flexible and easy to use and powerful servlet engine. It can work with apache or it can act as webserver by itself.

So then I would need to download Apache as well? At present I've downloaded Sun's Appserver, which is suppose to be an all-in-one package, and I've downloaded ServletExec, which works with IIS and according to the FAQ sheet I mentioned above, it is used on a lot of high volume sites.

BTW... it seems to me as of now that to run servlets.. software needs to be installed on the server, like tomcat etc. So, does Frihost support any servlet platform... probably Java??

Woops, I missed the part I highlighted. I read some criticism of Tomcat on the web and got a different answer on the Sun forum from some yahoo, but after searching more and getting more answers on the Sun forum it is clear that your right. The main plus for me is that there is more IDE integration with Tomcat, supposedly. Although when I tried to compile a simple servlet example NetBeans immediately choked on the javax.servlet.* import; so much for IDE integration.
