You need a package that provides the javax.servlet.* classes (to compile
the CSS Validator and to use it as servlet). Jigsaw does not ship with
such a package. I use the servlet-api.jar from Apache Tomcat, see

I think the the classes contained in i18n.jar are already contained in
rt.jar (should ship with your Java runtime).

All I had to do is to put servlet-api.jar and the validator sources into
the classpath, open JigAdmin / http-server / Docs space / Root / servlet
(right click to) Add resource / Class name:
org.w3c.jigsaw.servlet.ServletWrapper / Identifier: validator / (right
click on) validator / Edit resource / Servlet Class:
org.w3c.css.servlet.CssValidator / Commit


would then return validation results for said page.

validator.zip is just a compressed package of the compiled classes. As
you have the classes already (after running ant) you do not need it.
Just go to the folder where ant put the binaries and run

  java -cp . org.w3c.css.css.StyleSheetCom
