Hi everyone,

I am new to Java, just finished SCJP training. It gave me quite a good overview of Java , but I am somewhat confused about web development with Java.

I've installed Linux on my machine. Then installed J2SE SDK, NetBeans, Tomcat and Oracle XE - it's all running smoothly however I would really appreciate if you could give me some advise on J2EE... But the guy on the training didn't install J2EE but was able to include all javax.* packages. Is this handled by tomcat itself or what? Do I actually need to install J2EE SDK ?

Thanks and regards, Radek

Tomcat provides some of the javax implementations (there are a lot of javax packages, not all related to J2EE). It is advisable to install a J2EE version of your IDE because especially when it's all new to you, it can get complicated. If you don't you'll need to add the appropriate packages to your classpath.

Thanks for the nice welcome, and quick response.

Is it fair to say that what I need is to install J2EE package over my current J2SE SDK? I noticed that J2EE comes with SDK included I would rather avoid conflicts...

thanks and regards, Radek

Welcome to the Ranch

It would appear that installing J2EE also installs the standard edition of Java™; you can see the downloads here. I don't think you can do any harm by installing J2SE twice. You will probably have to install Tomcat separately, however.
