Setting up a JSP development environment

If you have a Windows-based Web server and are interested in developing and testing JavaServer Pages (JSP) locally, inexpensively, and with a minimum of fuss, you can use Macromedia JRun Server Developer Edition—a full-featured, free, and non-expiring JSP application server.

The article provides instructions for installing, and configuring JRun Server Developer Edition on a local Windows computer. If you're a Macintosh user, you can also profit from the article if you have access to a Windows server running Microsoft Internet Information Server.

Note: JRun doesn't work properly with Microsoft Personal Web Server running on a Windows NT machine.

You'll find a copy of JRun Server Developer Edition on the Dreamweaver UltraDev CD. You can also download it. (You need to register if you're not already registered.)

Because the Developer Edition is limited to three concurrent connections, you'll need to upgrade to the Enterprise, Advanced, or Professional Edition if you want to deploy the JSP applications you develop in UltraDev.
