Hi,
I have downloaded Tomcat and eclipse. Does tomcat contain JEE sdk or do I need to install it from Sun?
When I try to install JEE from Sun, I am forced to download the GlashFish(Sun App version) also. Is there any way to get just JEE without the GlashFish version?
I checked the documents but I don't have any answer and so I am posting.

Are you a beginner? if so, i understand jee would be too big a thing to digest directly. You may start up with sample servlet and jsp applications, develop and deploy them and see if things are happening your way on tomcat.
Later you can try exploring more of technologies like EJBs which require an app-server.
JEE is a specification, a standard.
GlassFish is an app-server.
Tomcat is a servlet-container from apache.
Apache is an organization which also has a web-server of its name (that way apache web-server and tomcat server are two different things).
