Setting Up Your Workstation to Work with JSP

As explained in Chapter 26, “Introduction to Dynamic Dreamweaver,” preparing your workstation to work with any data-driven server technology involves setting up the web server and application server; making sure your DBMS and database are in place; installing any necessary drivers for the database; and making sure everything works. When working with JSP, there is also the extra step of creating a web application. The following sections walk you through obtaining and setting up the Apache Tomcat server and setting up a database and driver for Access or MySQL. Because the Tomcat server is Java, and will function on Windows and Mac OS X, instructions cover both platforms.

Note

Mac users: If you’re using OS X, for the first time in Dreamweaver history you have the option of doing all development on your computer, without having to create an FTP connection to an external server. Be warned, however: All the OS X advanced web-serving capabilities are based on UNIX, and are not for the timid. If you have the option to connect to an external server, this is still probably the easiest solution for you. (See Chapter 26 for instructions on connecting to a remote server for Dreamweaver dynamic sites.)
