I would like to run J2EE on my PC in order to learn the various technologies. I have a problem: my PC has Windows XP on it, but J2EE requires Windows 2000. I would like to set up a Windows 2000/XP dual boot on my PC, but I have no idea where to get Windows 2000 or how to set up the dual boot. Please help. Microsoft's website does provide some vague guidelines for setting up a dual boot, but I'm looking for more detail than it provides. Thanks Fitzryan [ July 23, 2002: Message edited by: Fitzryan Adams ]
You'll be pleased to know that the J2EE RI runs fine on XP. Simon

Thanks for the info. That's odd that the XP support isn't mentioned on Sun's J2EE download page. I hope that I can also find a web server, EJB server, and database that run on XP.

The J2EE reference implementation that you can download from the Sun site is a full application server so it's all that you need to get started. Apart from the JDK of course! ;-) It also comes with a database for development usage.
