I am upgrading from jdk1.4 to jdk5.0. I am currently using j2ee 1.3.
So I need to upgrade from j2ee1.3 to j2ee1.4? I downloaded j2eesdk1.4 but durin install it says its going to install sun app server, jdk5.0 (which I already have) and some exatra stuff. Hence confused. ie I don't need sun app server since I am using other server. I already have jdk1.5.

Thanks.

You don't need to install j2ee1.4 from Sun. But ugrade your app. server (Jboss, weblogic whatever) you're using if they require jdk5 if not you even don't need to upgrade your jdk.
j2ee1.4/JEE5 is only a specification. Sun and othe companies implement it on top of jdk1.4/java5.
hope help.
