I have a bunch of .class files which im told I need to run with Apache Tomcat as a Java Servlet Container (I have no idea what that means). I have IIS 5 on the server (required for other stuff) and there is an installation of Tomcat 4.0 but im not sure if its being used correctly. Can anyone tell me:
1. Can IIS and Tomcat reside together and function cooperatively
2. Can IIS 5 handle the java servlet container stuff by itself?
3. How can I configure IIS/Tomcat to run these servlets?

1. Yes, they can, but IIS cannot forward requests to tomcat same way as Apache can.
2. No!
3. IIS cannot be configured to run thees. Tomcat can, if you got theese from a developer ask him to create a WAR package for the application and put this into the webapp dir of the tomcat installation and it should work automagically.
Configuring it manually isn't very easy and take quite some time, it's almost impossible to tell you how to do that without knowing anything about the .class file, servlet name, is there a WEB-INF dir with a web.xml and so on.

Goto:
jakarta.apache.org

Read some documentation about tomcat to get some understanding on what Tomcat is and what you need to do.
