Re: Servlets, was Re: Various issues: kaffe, compilers, freeness, etc.

The servlet.jar in Kaffe will not work. It is only a shell. There is another
LGPL implementation that was written by Paul Siegmann and Mark Wielaard. It
is available at: http://www.euronet.nl/~pauls/java/servlet

I have been able to get this working with Kaffe and JServ. It was not easy,
per se, but not difficult. You definatly must run JServ in the "manual"
mode. I created an /etc/init.d script to start it seperatly. I have
actually been using this configuration with the Postgres driver and the
"Webslinger" project we have been building to create very sophisticated
web-database applications. There is also a completely free EJB implementation
available from Bull that includes their transaction monitor. The combination
of these components allows for an "Enterprise" level web development
environment that is comparable in power, if not ease of use, to any
proprietary package out there.
