I have spent ALL DAY looking for stuff to do with jsp, servlets, tomcat and ant. The 4 things just aren't covered together. Yours is the first article that actually touches on what kind of development methodology / cycle you need to follow. The '4 stages' of the ant build were a real light bulb.
It would be great if you could write the same kind of article again, but pitched at newbies i.e. no database connectivity, 1 class, simpler ant (BUT KEEP THE FOUR STAGES), and so on. The learning curve is v steep otherwise. Many thanks!
