Hello everyone,
I am currently trying to learn J2EE using SUN's J2EE tutorial and I am a little confused concerning how to verify that the environment variables have been set. Now I have an IDE, Oracle JDeveloper (for Oracle 9i) installed on my PC which runs on Windows (ME). Quoting the tutorial's preface page, it says "This tutorial documents the J2EE SDK version 1.3. To build, deploy, and run the examples you need a copy of the J2EE SDK 1.3 and the J2SE SDK 1.3.1 (earlier versions were called JDK). You can download the J2EE SDK from:….”. But I have reason to believe that I had this installed when I installed the JDeveloper, as they are both designed to build and deploy J2EE application (right?). [1]I would now like to know if this is the case. I am really low on hard disk space now and would hope this is so.
Questions:
[2] If this the case, how can I set the environment variables in the JDeveloper (so that I can carry on working with the tutorial) in a way that it doesn’t affect the functioning of the JDeveloper. The point where environment variable can be set in the JDeveloper is in one file in c:\Oracle\JDeveloper\bin\jdev.conf file .
[3]This page on the tutorial also asks one to download ant. I can’t find a similarly named file in the JDeveloper. Do have this with the JDeveloper or do I need to go and download it? Does anybody know?
Has anyone gone through the same process? Does anyone have any useful suggestions?
Any useful suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

All I can suggest is to junk all those IDEs and stuff, get a simple editor like JEdit (free) and do what it says in the first chapter of the J2EE Tute.
You only need JAVA_HOME, J2EE_HOME, ANT_HOME.
Start up J2EE and cloudscape and everything runs like lubricated.
KISS principle applies.
Cheers
