I am trying to set up my working environment for development at personal leval. i have j2sdk1.4.2_08 and j2eesdk1.4_01_2005Q1-windows jakarta tomcat5.0.28 , sun java application server8.1, netbeans4.1 and also eclipse3.0.4.besides i have jboss4.0.2 too...
now my requirement is web component development and also EJB, RMI..
can u describe what is the best way to achieve this goal by wasting minimum time deciding what shud be the composition. i am a student so any of experienced developer's working environment will be ideal to start with.
i will be glad if you will tell me ur own setup of working environment.
Jay, Regardless of what else you go with, you need to install the SDK (core java) and J2EE. Tomcat only gives the web part, so you will need something else for the EJBs. Given that, you might was well use that "something else" for the web part so there is less software involved. And of course you should choose an IDE.
So you want one of the following: Eclipse/JBoss NetBeans/Java App Server
For Eclipse, you also need a J2EE plugin - like Lomboz. I don't recall whether NetBeans has built in J2EE support.

Right. Tomcat is great for JSPs and servlets. (That was what I meant by the "web part."
the purpose of my question is how to have a reliable setup....so all your needs in developing components can be met in one place.
Either NetBeans/Sun App Server or JBoss/Eclipse is a reliable and common configuration.
in a way i am lookiing for best practice and is purely matter of choice
Definitely a matter of personal choice. There isn't really a best practice on this. You want to do something common, but both configurations you are considering are common. It being a matter of choice definitely sums it up. Good point! Personally, I would favor JBoss/Eclipse.

it really helped me deciding the "get-started-factor".
