If you are wanting to learn jsp then run tomcat or another servlet container.
There are many out there that you can choose from, check here for a list of
possible ones that you can use:


Now there are some reasons to have apache front your servlet container; however,
for what you are doing, you probably dont need that right now. If you want to
use apache in front of a container then you will want to look at mod_jk or even
just a standard proxy. Again, this might be overkill for what you are doing.

My recommendations for learning...get a light weight container like tomcat or
even jetty and go from there.
