To run the servlets, you need either a web server with native servlet support, a web server with a servlet engine plug-in (for example, ServletExec), or a web application server (for example, WebSphere, WebLogic®). Servlet support must meet the J2EE 1.2 Web Container, JSP 1.1, and Servlet API 2.2 specifications.

Procedure: How to Configure the Application Server

Configuration procedures vary depending on your web server, application server, or servlet container. Review the third-party documentation for information on how to deploy web applications.

  2. If necessary, ensure your web server can route servlet requests to the application server.
  3. If necessary, restart your web and/or application servers.
