Hello Friends,

I completed my SCJP , SCWCD and BCD , But still dont have a good practical knowledge..I have two computers at home. So I thought of making one computer as Server the other one as client. Both of my computers are Vista.

Can someone please suggest me how to do this. I dont have any idea.How to make a Server and the other computer as Client.
If any good site please suggest.

Thanks,
mallika

Hi Karthi Keyan,

Nice to see your reply to my message. I was waiting for some reply desperately.

Actually I am not sure about this, as which server should be installed.
I have learned jsp, servlets and Enterprise beans. Now I want to use all this along with server client knowlegde ,..
I know this seems to be elementary, but please help me guiding.

Any server installation which is free would be perfect ..

Waiting for your reply..
Thanks,
mallika.

If you want to use JSP, Servlets and EJBs as well then you need an App server like weblogic/JBoss. generally the developer license is free for these servers and you can install them on any of the computer provided you have the minimum recommended hardware configuration. Wish you all the best with your server side coding.

Another option would be Glassfish (on dev.java.net) which I think is the JEE reference implementation.

You can use NetBeans 6 IDE and GlassFish as the combination is very easy to use.

Thank you all for the replies ..As Sun is giving a free Glassfish Server training, I should learn and implement the same with NetBeans.
WebLogic too seems to be a good option.

Thanks again!
