If you are just getting started with web applications in Java, I highly
recommend O'Reilly's "Java Servlet Programming"; read it start-to-finish
(except for any regurgitation of the Servlet/JSP APIs). You should also
keep a bookmark around to the APIs themselves:

If you are just playing around, do it on your own box. You don't need a
"server" to write your own servlets and learn everything. If you feel
strongly about running your servlets on a different system, I highly
recommend using a host/guest OS virtualization product such as VMWare --
you can run your servlets in a completely separate environment and
convince yourself that remote communication is truly working.
