Hi Craig

I saw yr very reasonable explaination and have understood a lot more den i
used to. Thanks... =)

However, I have tried to deploy my Tomcat application using J2EE server like
the one provided by SUN. I tried two methods. One by moving the entire
folder to public_html and also by trying to deploy. Both methods doesnt
works when it comes to locating certain javabean classes i placed under
web-inf-->classes-->FOLDER.(not EJB) ... wat seems to work just fine doesnt
seem to work at all in J2EE. I do not think therefore I can develop using
tomcat and deploy using a J2EE server.

Tomcat 3.2 (and 3.3) are based on the Sevlet 2.2 and JSP 1.1
specifications (these match up with J2EE 1.2).

Tomcat 4.0 is based on the Servlet 2.3 and JSP 1.2 specifications, which
are the versions included in J2EE 1.3.  In general these specs are
backwards compatible so that your older webapps will still run.

If your applications don't require EJBs, it is very reasonable to do your
development under Tomcat and then deploy on a J2EE server.  Just be sure
you don't rely on Tomcat-specific features in your applications.
