I'm looking to learn/write JEE apps with Eclipse and targeting Apache Geronimo. I went to the Sun site to get the SDK and the only thing that I could find were installers that wanted to bring Glassfish along for the ride. I don't want Glassfish. I just want the Jars.

Anyone see them?

Welcome to JavaRanch.

Look for the JEE 5 specs at http://faq.javaranch.com/java/SpecificationUrls#currentJava. They include the jar files and javadocs.

I'm afraid I can't find them. I went to the spec for j5ee and then 'Final Release' and a few more links after that only to be offered the the Java Application Server binary. I went back to the JavaRanch page you suggested, followed down the EJB trail only to find myself back at the J5EE download page at

http://java.sun.com/javaee/downloads/index.jsp

I know this sounds way out there, but if you could go to that page and find the link that will give me the SDK WITHOUT Glassfish or Netbeans or Sun Application Server or any other piece of software that Sun wants to show off I will give you my physical address, invite you into my home, and let you shove my nose against my monitor saying "See it now?? See it now??"

Thanks!

James,

The easiest way in this case is to simply setup Geronimo as a server in Eclipse: http://geronimo.apache.org/geronimo-eclipse-plugin-installation-instructions.html. When you create the Java EE module (EAR, WAR EJB-JAR) simply specify Geronimo as the target runtime: http://www.eclipse.org/webtools/jst/components/j2ee/scenarios/application_creation_tutorial.html. Eclipse will take care of importing the correct classpath entries. Keep in mind, Java EE is not Java SE. All Java EE APIs are supposed to be shipped with a complaint Java EE server, not standalone. Hence the Sun SDK ships with GlassFish. This would be like asking for specific DLLs inside the .NET runtime. It is fundamentally an unsound idea.

If you really need references to Java EE JARs, you may copy them over from the Geronimo libraries.

Hope it helps,
Reza
