I am trying to download fully functional Java/J2EE/WebServices platform(bundle) to learn web services. I am trying to download JDK 6 Update 17 with NetBeans 6.8 from

But JDK 6 Update 17 with Java EE seams to have the GlassFish server, J2EE, web services....are these not included in the above one?

You can download the JDK with NetBeans 6.8, and then install the Java EE plugins from within NetBeans afterwards.

To do that, in NetBeans go to the menu Tools / Plugins, select the tab Available Plugins, click the ones that you want to install and then click the Install button. NetBeans will then download and install those plugins into the IDE. GlassFish and all the Java EE stuff is available as a NetBeans plugin.
