You don't need Ant to build JSPs or Servlets but it is a handy tool for
building, deploying, and undeploying.

I recommend that you pickup a Servlet/JSP book or find a good tutorial
on the web.  The "First App" tutorial on the Tomcat site is excellent.
It mentions CVS and gives some good pointers for using it in your
projects but you don't need to use CVS to get through the tutorial.

I've got some simple examples on that can be
run by simply downloading the war files to your webapps directory. 
It's an easy way to see some working examples but it's not a tutorial.

Do a Google search for Servlet Tutorial and you'll see scores of them.

The time it takes to do some reading or to follow a tutorial or two will
be well spent.
