Where to download RI and deploytool, etc

Maybe a stupid question:
"Head First EJB" is referring to the RI AppServer and the deploytool. Where on Sun's website can I download it? I searched but did not find any location.
Your help is appreciated.

"RI" stands for "reference implementation". It's part of the "J2EE SDK" download (as is the deploytool).

I installed the full SDK (Windows version) but there is now deploytool executable nor the server. Any hint?

To clarify what I HAVE installed: There is a folder
c:\j2sdk1.4.2_02
Inside I find other dirs, a bin directory and a jre directory. But I cannot find the deploytool nor the RI server.
Please help.

Found it. It's now called Sun Application Server.
Sun's website is a little bit diffuse but finally I found it.
Thanks to everybody who looked into this.

The Sun ONE Application Server is not the reference implementation. I believe the J2EE SDK still is.

You are right.
They now named it "Sun Application Server" without the "One". And that is actually where part of my confusion came from. I love Java. I love the idea of open source. But Sun could definitely do a better job with respect to structuring their website and less changing names of all the pieces.

...especially when they're renaming even their "end-of-life" products such as iPlanet 6. :roll:
