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.

>found what looks to be a good project  
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.
