java 6 installation

Hello,
I want to train myself in spring and hibernate and therefore I am trying to install all the pieces of software. Can anyone guide me as to which Java EE 6 version I have to install from the following flavors listed in the download page --- "Java EE 6 Web Profile SDK", Java EE 6 SDK", "NetBeans IDE 6.9", "GlassFish Tools Bundle for Eclipse *", "Java EE 5 SDK ". Here is the link http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javaee/downloads/index.html. I am trying to setup ant and it gave an error "unable to find tools.jar" in the java lib directory. I looked at the jr6 that I had downloaded earlier and it did not have tools.jar. Therefore I am looking for the correct flavor to install on my machine.

Thanks,
Sue Vela

Welcome to JavaRanch!

What's "m/c"? Please UseRealWords when posting. Using abbreviations makes your writing much harder to understand, especially for the many Ranchers for whom English isn't their native language. You can edit your post by using the button.

You don't need to install *any* JEE to use Spring or Hibernate.

I will avoid abbrevation in my posts. My original post mentioned about spring and hibernate but if we exclude them and I just want to download Jee 6 then which of the downloads is preferrable. Thanks,
Sue

Well, NetBeans is an IDE and not directly related to JEE. Which JEE (5 or 6) depends on which you're trying to target, which I don't know. The Eclipse tools are only useful if you're using Eclipse, which I also don't know.

I would *strongly* recommend against trying to deal with a JEE app server, Spring, and Hibernate all at the same time. Pick one.
