Tutorial: Very Simple HelloWorld Web Application

This tutorial is for beginning programmers who want to know the minimal basic information on how to create servlets and JSPs, package them into a deployable WAR file, deploy the application to a tc Runtime instance, and run the application in a browser. The tutorial uses Ant as its build framework. You can also use an IDE, such as SpringSource Tool Suite, to create the application. The tutorial shows you how to create each artifact, from the servlet source to the Ant build.xml file, from scratch.

Before You Begin

Install vFabric tc Server and Ant. See Installing tc Server and Apache Ant Project.
