    hi i know im being foolish but i have several basic questions :-

    1)why do we need a special software for the server. i mean, isnt the server another computer like the others ?

    2)what are dynamic html and static html pages ? why r they differently processed in the server/client(im not 2 sure where)?

    3)what is jsp and what does it do ?

    4)what is a java servlet and what does it do ?

    5)what is an apache server( i just know tht it is some software to make r computer run like a server )? what does it do?
    also, why is it different from jakarta tomcat(what the hell is it) ?

    i'd really appreciate if somebody can answer my questions.

    Hi incorrigible,

    All of this information is readily available by searching the web.

    I apologise straight off the bat if I misread this, but your Bio says you are a student, and these "basic" questions seem more like things you would have on an exam or homework.

    We really like allowing people the exciting opportunity of learning something on their own. We will be here to help you out with a problem, but most of us are loathe to actually do your homework for you.

    I did a little research.
    Incorrigible is learning Java and VB. He is working on simple applets and studying as a programmer. He also asked for some help on a project about 3 tier architecture but wasnt sure what it was.
