Thanks alot for your help Alex. I was able to get them running rather
easily. I just put the files in the web directly and the clients
-do- read them just fine. Thanks for your help.

For some reason I thought that I need the apache-jserv modules to be
loaded. I guess I don't. That still leaves me wondering what apache-jserv
"Servlet Engine" which exists in the ports -does-, but since I am already
where I need to be, I will read on that perhaps some other day.
