1. dunno
2. dunno
but remember that JSPs are compiled into servlets and cached so they all end
up as servlets eventually.
3. yes change conf/server.xml
There are 3 ports listed. One is for tomcat receiving HTTP requests, one is
for HTTPS requests (SSL) and one is for communicating with a web server like
apache and for shutdown/startup of tomcat. Pick what ports you want.
4. Try
<>  it has
HttpJspPage, couldnt see base.
5. dunno, I use servlets that put beans in session and JSPs read from them

Subject: JSP and Tomcat containers

I'm doing an assignment on Java Server Pages, and I have a couple of
questions about the Tomcat webserver:
1. Which container (engine) will be running with Tomcat? The JSP container,
the servlet container, or both?
2. I'm only using JSP-documents, but does the JSP container handle the same
stuff that the servlet container handled before 'the era' of JSP?
3. Tomcat listens on port 8080 - can I get it to listen on port 80, and how?
4. Where can I get the API documentation for class HttpJspBase? I've
searched Suns homepage with no luck.
5. How do I (in my JSP page) read data sent with HTTP POST? I can't use
Thanks in advance,
