You are correct that you don't _need_ J2EE for servlets and JSPs, but they
aren't included in J2SE, which is only the core Java classes. To use them
you need to download an extra implementation of those functionalities, which
are included in J2EE or could be used from a web server/application server
implementing those APIs, for example Tomcat (http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat),
Resin, Weblogic, etc.
