j2ee on OS X 10.2.6

Does anyone know where I can get the J2EE SDK and an EJB container that will run on OS X 10.2.6?
I've used Apache and Tomcat to run some JSP examples, but I'm studying for the SCBCD exam using the Head First book and I really want to try the examples out.
I'd be grateful for any help.

I have used JBoss before for an EJB container. As far as a J2EE sdk, the standard OSX install should have it included. You probably could update to java 1.4.1 as well using software update. Just a heads up, though - swing apps do NOT work under osx java 1.4.1
You will have to upgrade to panther(10.3) to get java 1.4.2 to get swing apps to work(Or you can use the java 1.3.1 jdk on the os if that meets your needs)
good luck!

That's great Mark. I download JBoss the other evening (36MB down some damp string and an empty soup can...), but I've not yet had the nerve to try it out as I'm now struggling with Tomcat again...
I'll let you know how I get along.
Many thanks again,
I agree. Here's the link:
