Hey to all.
I was having trouble installing Java EE onto my computer so I was wondering if anyone can tell me exactly how and which files to download.
I tried downloading 3 different files from the Java website, but none of the files in the zip's were double-click install files.
I'm using a mac just btw.
I need the download that allows me to use servlets since the regular java doesn't have those and related classes...

The easiest may be to download Apache Tomcat. It includes all required jar files (in the common/lib directory), and is a servlet container to boot (which you'll need to run servlets, as opposed to just compiling them).

Well I had already downloaded MAMP, which creates a tomcat server (and one other server thing).
I also had tried to download Tomcat before and was having trouble with that too. I'll try it again and report back later...

Xavi,
There is nothing called installing "Java EE".
Java EE is a set of specifications created to create enterprise software projects, these specifications are implemented in the shape of application server (general speaking).
If you are looking to create Java web applications, then you can get Apache Tomcat or Jetty or any full-fleged application server.
If you are looking to create Java enterprise applications, then get JBoss AS, Apache Geronimo, Sun Oracle Glassfish

Well when I try to compile a server class, I get the message "package javax.servlet does not exist" so I thought that I had to download something for java.
What do I do then?

This might help.
