Problems with J2EE server/deploytool

Hi - I've just installed the newest (1.2.1) version of J2EE on my NT machine. I can get the server to run ok, and I've been trying to follow the step-by-step example in the documentation using deploytool. Everything is fine (setting up my JAR, adding it to an EJB application, etc.) until I try to actually deploy my bean, whereupon I get a RemoteException saying that the server could not find javac!! There's a bug listed in the Known Bugs list which says that deployment problems can occur if you have a standalone JRE, which is an option on some platforms. As far as I know, I don't have this (I even tried reinstalling my SDK 1.3 just to check, and it wasn't offered as an option). I'd really like to get this to work and would appreciate any help.

Hmmm, just reinstalled J2EE on another machine and everything worked perfectly. Oh well.

If you like the IDE way of doing things download the Sun One Studio Enterprise Edition....It handles all those little annoyances, yet add a few new ones.
I agree. Here's the link:
