Java 2 Enterprise Edition SDK (J2EE SDK)

To develop end-to-end enterprise solutions focusing on the server side you can use the Java 2 Enterprise Edition Software Development Kit (J2EE SDK).

The latest J2EE SDK version can be downloaded from:

Installing J2EE SDK 1.3.1

The J2EE 1.3.1 release includes the following software:
  • J2EE server (Tomcat version 4.0.2)
    Tomcat is an implementation of the JavaServer Pages and Servlet specifications and is one of the most popular servlet containers. It does not contain a EJB container. This Tomcat version might be slightly different different from the version of Tomcat 4.0.2 distributed separately because of different release schedules. This version supports Servlet 2.3 and JSP 1.2.

  • Cloudscape DBMS (v. 4.0.6). Cloudscape is a relational DBMS written in the Java programming language.

  • Tools
    • Administration Tool
      The j2eeadmin utility adds JDBC drivers, JMS destinations, and connection factories for various resources.
    • Application Deployment Tool
      The deploytool utility packages J2EE components and deploys J2EE applications. In the 1.3.1 release it receives an enhanced update function and intelligent field completion.
    • Key Tool
      The keytool utility creates public and private keys and generates X509 self-signed certificates. The J2EE SDK version is a wrapper for the J2SE SDK version, but adds an option for the format conversion of PKCS12 certificates.
    • Realm Tool
      The realmtool utility manages users for the J2EE server.
    • Verifier
      The verifier utility validates J2EE component files.
    • Packager
      The packager utility packages J2EE components.
    • Cleanup Script
      The cleanup utility deletes all deployed J2EE applications.
Operating system used
Windows XP Home Edition Version 5.1 SP 2

Software prerequisites
J2SE SDK version 1.3.1_02 or higher

You need the J2SE SDK to run the J2EE server and to build and run J2EE applications. If your J2EE application client resides on a different machine than the J2EE server, then you must install the J2SE SDK on both the server and client machines. (This rule applies only to J2EE application clients, not to Web browser clients.)

  1. Download and execute j2sdkee-1_3_1-win.exe

  2. Set the J2EE_HOME environment variable to the directory where you installed J2EE.
    e.g.: J2EE_HOME=C:\Tools\java\j2sdkee1.3.1

  3. Add the bin directory to your path.
    e.g.: PATH=%J2EE_HOME%\bin;%PATH%

  4. To start the J2EE server in verbose mode, open a DOS window and type: j2ee -verbose
    You should see:
    J2EE server Listen Port: = 1050
    Starting web service at port: 8000
    Starting secure web service at port: 7000
    J2EE server startup complete.

  5. After the J2EE server has been started, you can display the welcome page:
