Hi All,
Can you tell me how to install J2EE 6 and Tomcat 6?

I try to download J2EE 6 from SUN site and there seems to be lot available I am not sure which one I need to download and same for Apache TomCat 6.

Can please someone tell me which path I need to follow to get J2EE 6 and Tomcat 6 installed and run an application on it?

What operating system are you installing onto. That is probably the first and most important question.

For JDK 6 with Java EE you probably want this link and then "JDK 6 Update 12 with Java EE". From there you can select your platform and language.

For Tomcat 6 You'll want this link and probably one of the binary distributions. I believe both Windows and Linux are included in the same zipped files, i.e. Linux uses shell script and Windows uses .bat files in order to start tomcat.

For installing you can read the documentation from each site, but for linux I like to use . They really have a great community and plenty of installation walk-throughs.

good luck!
