There is a PDF tutorial for Forte included in the Internet Edition. I haven't spent much time with it, but it seems pretty decent. It's located in ${FORTE_HOME}/docs/tutorial/ie/fjie_tut.pdf.

There is a lot of additional documentation at:

http://www.sun.com/forte/ffj/documentation/index.html

As far as choosing a web/app server for your product, a little more information would help. Choosing a deployment environment, at least in my mind, depends on what platform you're planning to deploy on and how much you want to spend.

If you want to go cheap and can run on a Linux/Unix-based machine, then go with Apache Webserver and Tomcat.  Realize that when I say cheap, I'm referring only to cost. The Apache products are open source, and are some of the best supported and robust products you can get.

Information on Apache Webserver is available at: http://httpd.apache.org

Tomcat info: http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat

If on the other hand, you want to spend some money, go with BEA weblogic to host your site. It can get pretty pricey to use, but it's a very good solution.

Weblogic info can be found at: http://e-docs.bea.com/wls/docs61/index.html

Hopefully, this'll get you started. If not, post a few more details on what you're looking for and I'll see if I can help...
