I have been working with J2SE for a while now and want to move to J2EE. My first question - I have installed the JDK for creating J2SE applications...I understand that J2EE uses some additional APIs...do I need to install a different JDK?

Paul,
The JDK is the same. You need to install something additional though. To compile J2EE applications, you need j2ee.jar or servlets.jar (if you aren't using EJBs). These will come with the application server you are going to use to run what you write. Common free choices for an application server are Tomcat (if you aren't using EJBs) and JBoss.

Thank you much...I'm running the Eclipse IDE with the Tomcat Web server. I have been able to get my servlets to compile and run...I've just been wondering if I was SUPPOSED to install a different JDK. Thanks again!
