Server, server wherefore art thou?

Hi,
Does anyone know where to get the Sun RI Server, only the server. I downloaded the Sun Studio not realising that it is the IDE + Server, and "The Good Book" has all the lovely deploy tool pics and things, not to be missed. The deploy tool is not included in the Studio version of the download, rather the IDE has some built in tool for deployment. Sun is trying to hide the 1.3 stuff again?
See ya
Michael

Try looking here.
It'll require a couple more steps to reach the desired target.

Hi Dmitry,
Thanks! I got that link, problem is that the deploytool is built into the Sun Studio IDE for that version, and the book uses the deploytool seperate. Not to worry I found a copy of a 1.4 JDK with the server and deploytool seperate on an old external backup hard drive I had lying around. This one is a little different but the tool is seperate, perfect. I would put it up on a site somewhere but I think Sun will have kittens if I start distributing their software, also I only have 50 meg on my own site and the JDK is 120 meg, which doesn't help. I think that a solution is necessary for guys that haven't got this. If you can think of somewhere to put a copy of this JDK for anyone else that needs it that would be great.
See ya
Michael

Michael,
I didn't quite get what your problem is...
The link leads to J2EE SDK 1.3, it does have a deploytool included and that's exactly the version that is described in the book. I tested with jdk1.4, it works perfectly...
The following has to be inserted in /bin/j2ee.bat:
set JAVA_HOME=C:\j2sdk1.4.1
set J2EE_HOME=C:\j2sdkee1.3
(Change the directories' names if necessary accordingly to your own names.)

We interrupt this technology for a humanities lesson...
Juliette wasn't standing out on her balcony trying to spot Romeo... She knew he was there. The line, in today's English, means "why do you have to be Romeo (from the family that my family can't seem to hang with)?"

Gentlemen, thank you. I am clearly intellectually challenged.
To clear things up for any other would be misguided pilgrims the bundle of supprisingly marginal size (15 meg) in fact contains not only the server but the tool too, duly aquired at http://java.sun.com/j2ee/sdk_1.3/ .
Thanks Dale, the allusion was to the server being in the wrong family of products, congruent to the Shakespear import. I do find English to be a succinct, precise, simple and coluourful language when mastered, although it does lack the flowery detail of my own mother toungue, Dutch.
See ya
Michael
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
