Confusion about using Java SE or Java EE for EJBs

Dear Folks,

I am reading O'reilly's book named 'Enterprise JavaBeans 3.0' and in that its written that 'make sure you have the Java SE JDK 5 or higher installed and correctly configured'.

I am highly confused with this line as, as far as I know, to run EJBs we are required to install Java EE JDK rather than Java SE.

Can anyone help me resolve my confusion?

Thanks in advance,
Pankaj Poshirkar

You *always* need a JSE to start with; JEE is just a collection of APIs on top of that. Note that JEE 5 requires JSE 5, while the recently released JEE 6 requires JSE 6.

ok... thanks... so does this mean that after I download Java SE, I also need to include the J2EE jar files explicitly in the lib directory to make Enterprise JavaBeans work?
