J2EE classes, where are they?

Hey All,

Looking to convert my project into J2EE (from J2SE), I think I'm mainly looking at EJBs (for holding userdetails, login auth, etc)

Just wondering, the last tim eI used J2EE was about 4 years ago, now it all seems to have chganged quite a bit. I'm sure then, I could just download the J2EE classes in much the same way you down load the J2SE stuff. Now it seems I have downloaded the whole Sun WebApp Server, which is fine (as I can use this as my WebApp) but I would like to know, where I can see the J2EE classes/JARS? So I can add them to my projects library (using Eclipse-Europa)

Hi,
You need to download Glassfish application server from http://glassfish.dev.java.net it is somehow RI implementation but with a superior performance.

Best way to revamp your knowledge of EJBs is looking at Netbeans.org and its knowledge base, most of the articles and tutorial are based on GlassFish application server.

another way of learning is looking at http://www.javapassion.com/j2ee/

Hi Keith,

Did you ever find a simple solution to this problem? I'm in a similar situation and do not want to download glassfish, netbeans or anything else other than the raw jar files. What happened to j2ee.jar ??

I have the added issue of developing on a Mac and cannot seem to find an SDK for j2ee5 on this platform.

Cheers,
Clive

Alas no, instead i downloaded Eclipse Europa (the J2EE version of Eclipse) and will presume that it has all I need.

Seems Sun have abandoned the J2EE SDK thingy, all you can do is download the Sun WebApp (which I have also done).

Hi Keith,

Thanks for the reply. Well, I've bitten the bullet and loaded netbeans EE, filling my hard-disk with lots of stuff I don't need or want. However, it does appear that under SUNWappserver/lib there is javaee.jar file which looks to contain the core API. There are a lot of 'potentially' other useful libraries (eg a jsf implementation jar).

However, I think for my needs (Persistence interface + transaction API) I'm just going to grab the javaee.jar file, move it somewhere useful and remove all the other noise.

A lot of trouble to get one jar file!

Cheers,
Clive

Yeah Eclipse-Europa has J2EE hidden away somewhere and under the PLUGINS folder there are a load of J2EE things and the Sun WebApp has the J2EE jar under the lib folder.

Problem is, I've been looking at EJB with JSP/Servlets, but a lot of folk are raving about Spring and JSFs!!!

Now I dunno if I should stick with JSP/Servlet and EJBs or if I'm better off looking at Spring and JSFs?

Standards bloody standard!
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
