Beginning JSP

Hello,

I need a suggestion. We are running access database at the moment. We are now keeping different languages in the mind right now, as we want to change our Access Application changed to Local Intranet Based application.

We have JSP in our mind. So would need some information. Please guide on the following question:

1) Can we run JSP pages on Windows Server 2003 which can be accessed by users on LAN?

2) What Database should we use for storing of our data. msSQL Express Version or mySQL or any other suggestion which would work great with JSP.

Regards

Any database can work with Java - so you can use not only MySqL but if you prefer MsSQL server or Oracle - it is just a matter of preferences.

If you need to run only JSP (not Enterprise Java Beans) Ikd recommend to use Tomcat - it is very easy in installation on windows and very popular and free

to make it simple.

jsp-maily used for frond end visibility.
EJB-used for back end code.

EJB-for large scale application then go for EJB.for normal application u should use JSP.

Well, I should not have mentioned it - you really don't need Enterprise Java Beans, it is just one feature which distinguishes full blown
java application server as JBOSS or Weblogic and java servlet/jsp engine which is Tomcat.

You can read about EJB here, most proably you'll not need it, at least for the beginning with Java:

We will have some local small applications like booking softwares, inventory software.. so I think JSP will be fine for it?
