hi all,

I am new to J2EE although i have good knowledge of just Java.

I  have downloaded J2EE 1.4SDK. It seems to have an application server.  Do i still need to install Apache TOMCAT application server.
Are there any good online documents for J2EE 1.4 SDK .

thanks,

J

apache tomcat is only for servlet and jsps.

If you want to learn j2ee, I recommend you read some book about ejb and j2ee design patterns.

http://java.sun.com/j2ee/1.4/docs/tutorial/doc/

its a open source. meant for developer and commercial use. its another application server which provides you the j2ee container. you can use jboss itself. its another j2ee server.

hmmm, i dont have j2ee1.4.x ,cant say anything. but it will be usefull to have a first look at the built in j2ee server of j2eesdk.

for beginner to work on jsp/servlet the apache tomcat server is good to start with.

for ejbs you can use jboss app server.

u can use j2ee first for your study purpose.

after u r familiar with j2ee concepts, u may choose one enterprise app server
like jboss or weblogic or websphere or whatever u feel like
