This bit of text in the servlet instructions has a link to Sun for downloading the EE JDK

Download the J2EE SDK(Java 2 Enterprise Edition Software Development Kit) from Sun, and install it. It is a supplement to the JDK you already have installed. You need to include the javaee.jar in your classpath.

I found the download at Oracle, but it has something called Glass Fish. Do I need/want it?

Thanks,

Paul

You do not need GlassFish.

J2EE is way obsolete. AFAIK, for JEE (the current incarnation of J2EE), there is no download that does not contain GlassFish.

If this is just about servlets, then any servlet container (like Tomcat) includes the servlet-api.jar and jsp-api.jar files you'd need for servlet/JSP development.

OK, I got it set up so I can compile servlet code. As far as I can tell, you have to download GlassFish and there is no option to exclude it from installation.

Thanks
