Hi

What should I download from Sun to play with J2EE on Linux... how much does it cost?

I am hoping to learn how to write a basic web application in J2EE.

Can anyone recommend some tutorials or n00b guides?

You should download the J2EE 1.4 SDK from Sun at http://java.sun.com/j2ee/1.4/download.html
There is a J2EE 1.4 tutorial available further down on the same page.

You should indeed download the J2EE SDK (1.4 or maybe even 1.5 bèta).
If you need a good IDE, I'd recommend http://www.netbeans.org/ (which is free!).

Bairtlimead, where would you get J2EE 1.5 beta SDK? AFAIK there is no such thing as of yet, however there is a J2SDK 1.5 beta, but that's not J2EE.

Thanks Guys.

So is that really all I need... the J2EE SDK and a decent IDE...?

Do I need the Sun Java Enterprise System? What is that for? It looks like its charged per user? What about Sun Java Studio Enterprise 6 too?

If I want to write a J2EE web application, and sell this to someone, do they need to buy anything from Sun to use it legally?

Yes indeed. NetBeans has some built-in support for certain J2EE features. However, it is recommended that you not utilize these tools while learning J2EE.

You don't need the J2EE tools available at Sun. The J2EE tools from Sun are not free.

Just to clarify, you need the J2EE 1.4 SDK, but not Sun ONE Studio.
