hi guys,
yesterday i downloaded the JavaEE6sdk and the size was about 70MB. but the javaee5 sdk has a size of about 170MB.

why is this big change?

what does jee5 sdk include(does it include the servlets,jsp,java mail api packages or the sun server alone)
what does jee6 sdk include(i think only glassfish if that's the case then shoudl i download the packages(like webservice,javamail,java persistence all by myself)

I know my question sounds childish but please help me out here guys.


Thank you

Hi,

this big difference in size is surely not because of the platform (alone). I guess this bundle also include the Glassfish 3 application server and probably even NetBeans?!?

In general there are multiple bundles available for both EE versions. Depending on the link you click on the download page you might get the "pure" platform or the platform packaged with some of the things mentioned above and maybe other utilities, tools and documentation stuff.

Please note that a bigger download size, does not mean a more heavyweight platform

javaee5 doesnot come with netbeans.i checked

What i want to know whether it is jee5 or jee6 are all the packages(java mail api, servelt api.jar and others) present along with the sdk or should we download them separately

what i mean is that whether the technologies(web service,web development) do they come with the sdk or should we install them separately

The SDK includes all the components that are part of the JEE platform, i.e. if you use Glassfish 3 (the current reference implementation JEE 6) you will automatically get all the needed components plus you can fetch additional component via online updates.

NetBeans offers all the needed parts for development of JEE 5/6 applications out of the box.
