This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
As someone who has been programming Java for several years and JSP and servlets now for over a year now I thought I should expose myself to some of the rest of the J2EE specs such as JNDI and EJB's. I was disappointed to learn however that the J2EE SDK is not supported for my Windows 98 box. Does anyone know why this is the case?
Indeed - it's a pain. :roll: But, it is possible to get the J2EE RI working under Windows 98/ME. Have a scout around on the JDC as there's a thread containing some great instructions. Alternatively, upgrading to Win2K (expensive) or WinXP (cheaper) is a good move. Much more reliable for development anyway! I'll have a look too and post the results back here when/if I find them again. Simon
This is probably going to souns like a strange request, but could anyone email me a copy of their jaas.policy file under %J2EE_HOME%\lib\security directory to firstname.lastname@example.org . I have been able to isolate my problems with running J2EE on my Win98 box. All of the suggestions for the setenv.bat file make mention to a jaas.policy file under the \security subdirectory, but when I ran the .exe setup for the j2sdkee1.3.1 distribution it did not put a jaas.policy file in that subdirectory. I suppose I could try uninstall/reinstall or downloading again, but I thought someone out their might could save me a little time.
