When it comes to Java I'm a complete greenhorn. But I need to make a simple web application.

Requirements:
  • everything in Java (front-end and back-end)
  • 3 levels of access - guest, user, admin

  • What I have:
  • IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate
  • Apache server with MySQL running on Ubuntu VirtualBox machine

  • Which Java SDK version do I need? What else do I need to install? What Java technologies/frameworks should I use?

    Jacek,
    Welcome to CodeRanch!

    You should download the latest version of Java 8 to get started. You also need to install Tomcat. (or another server.)

    As far as where to start, how much Java do you know? Have you learned about servlets yet?

    So I should use Java SE? I thought Jave EE is "the server version" of Java.

    I only know basics about Java but I have some experience with other languages - the C family, PHP, Ruby etc.
    I think I've got the idea behind servlets. They are apps running on server (similar to PHP app), right?

    You can use the Java SE jar and another jar that gives you the servlet API. The Java EE jar is needed if you are doing EJBs and other enterprise type things. If you use the Java EE jar, you'd be running on application server like JBoss or WebSphere.

    Kind of. I think you are going to need to get a book before jumping into this project.
