Krysalis war file in w2k server

I have been looking for a package to do embedded barcode images in my web pages. I found what looks to be a good project. The documentation is sketchy unless you know all the jsp stuff which I don't, at least not yet. Here is what I have: the documentation says drop the file krysalis-barcode.war into your favorite web container and away you go. I think there may be numerous steps and requirements that I need. Here are some questions: I am running this on w2k advance server. Do I need to install some other lanuage type of thing like I had to to run perl scripts? I see them talking about tomcat, ant, centipede, but have no idea what they are. I am looking for some implementation help.

Thanks, Troy

FYI, here is their website:
Website: http://www.krysalis.org/barcode

Also any other barcoding suggestions would be welcomed. I want to be able to embed barcodes in my webpages doing the following:
<img src="somebarcodeservlet?type=c39&param2=xxx...etc....">

also, you need to download tomcat:
http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat
put the krysalis-barcode.war in the webapps subdir in tomcat. start you tomca and you'll be able to test the barcode sample by accessing http://localhost:8080/krysalis-barcode/

then you'll find the there is a dir krysalis-barcode been created in the same webapps dir, study the sample jsp pages, web.xml and grab the servlet.

let us know.

yes, looks interesting  
Your approach with the img tag calling a servlet is good.  
Ant would help you but is not necessary.

I found a small program that generates code 3 of 9 which works for me and have not needed to implement this. I will open a new question if/when I need to implement this.
