Hi Probably u can run J2EE under the win9x. Only thing J2EE needs is Java SDK. Because SDK works fine under win9x u could run J2EE too. It will work but win9x is kind of non certified platform for J2EE. Anyway u can do it for your practice. PS. U should have quite powerfull computer - 64M of memory, Pentium 200 and above. Otherwise it will work VERY slowly. Good luck.

Had significant problems running J2EE on Win95 -- none of the batch files work. I gave up quickly, maybe too quickly but there are easier alternatives. I suggest you take a long hard look at Orion (http://www.orionserver.com), a good J2EE compliant application server & webserver written in Java that works fine in Win95. Freely downloadable for development, you just pay for deployment.

DON'T GIVE UP :-) Yes, batch files don't work. But this is not a big issue. You can even install WebLogic Server(5.1) distributive FOR windowsNT on win98. And you will get even shortcuts in startup menu. I really do not need any prepared batch files in my practice... You can compose .bat files if you need it so... And finally - I think it is the best idea to use WebLogic as J2EE emplementation. Good luck.
