Can I install NetBeans and develop web applications without any JDK or container on the workstation?
I will be building JSP/Servlets and Java Classes for web applications that will be hosted on a server with Tomcat container. I was hoping to build the web apps with NetBeans and create a war file to upload to our web server that has Tomcat 6.0.28.
