yep.  :-)  you need a servlet/framework to process your templates.  I
do not recommend using the VelocityServlet included in velocity's core
library.  At this point, it is meant primarily as an example.  work on
supporting web development with velocity has shifted more to the
velocity-tools project.  so, if you plan to use Velocity for
developing web applications, i *strongly* suggest checking out either
velocity-tools (works great w/Struts!) or a web framework that offers
built-in Velocity support (Turbine, WebWork, JPublish, etc.)

personally, i think you'll find the velocity-tools project to be the
quickest way to get your feet wet.  it's feature set is not as full as
a framework's (nor is it that the intent of the project), but when
used with Struts (a very popular framework), i have found it to be
quite useful.  (but i'm biased :).

we don't have the latest docs up on the jakarta site yet, but Tim
Colson is currently keeping a set on his site:
