Hi All,
I am a programmer but new to Java. I just downloaded the J2SDKEE1.3 and read all the instructions but for the life of me cannot find any documentation about how to start up the server.
I've changed all the property files and CLASS_PATH and PATH.
I want to start writting some applications. I have a project at work that can use a Servlet.
I'm assuming I have to start the server then write my servlet then view it with the server.
Hope this makes sense to someone.
TIA for any help, Cynthia

J2SDKEE1.3 is a bit of an overkill for a servlet. J2EE is about Enterprise Applications and the 'server' is an Application Server.
Servlets are simple bits of code that extend web servers. All you would need to run servlets is Tomcat.

Check out:
http://java.sun.com/products/jsp/tomcat/

or

http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/

If indeed your intent is to write full-fledged Enterprise apps, then the J2EE server can be starting from the command prompt by typing "j2ee -verbose"

Find a tutorial here: http://java.sun.com/j2ee/tutorial/doc/GettingStarted2.html#67955

Click the "Home" link at the top left to get to the start of it.
