J2EE not supported for Windows 98

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,
Thanks for the help I have tried to follow the solutions posted on the thread you mentioned and I am close but I must be missing some little thing. So I posted another thread with my problems here http://forum.java.sun.com/thread.jsp?forum=136&thread=249166.

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 eric@eric-peterson.net . 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.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
