This is almost correct.
The parameter is called "resultsDir" not "ResultDir", you need to read the source
of
SurveyServlet.java to find this out. I used "c:/tmp" as the value (forward slash
works ok for
me on windows98 for java programs)
I followed the jigsaw documentation to enable servlets (source edit and rebuild
etc.)
I chose "servlet" as my directory name (not "servlets"), then copied the files in
the examples directory from JSDK2.0 to my servlet directory. I copied and modified
JdcSurvey.html
to suit my hostname, port and servlet name. I needed to restart the http-server to
reinitialise the servlet to clear previous config errors.

I do not use the jigsaw makefiles as I have a java program which builds the whole
source tree, (checking filenames agree with package names). I use jdk1.2beta4 to
build and run.
I copied the jsdk.jar to jdk1.2beta4/jre/lib/ext/ (since it is a javax package)
and this means it is automatically used for compiling and runtime with no
classpath mentions. I also use a java launcher program to launch other java
programs via a short alias, dynamically loading the correct jar file into the
launcher's JVM (jdk1.2 has new features that support this). I am managing to build
and run without using platform dependant helpers such as batch files and make.

The end result is that jigsaw, jigadm and servlets build and work* on window98
with java1.2beta4.

*Usual java bugettes such as awt component sizing and repainting anomalies.
