I have the same problem... there are at least 3 different java version at sun.com, and it is very confusing... we have:


and there are some "combos", java_ee without jdk, etc. And after some try and error, I ended having about 3 different jre installed...

Finally, java_ee is supposed to include a server... but why would I want to have another server, if I am already installing Tomcat?

After searching a lot, it seems we need JDK, and to setup envieronment variables like java_home and classpath. After that, I am not sure if there is the need to install java_EE (the version without JDK, since it is not recommended -in the forum I saw- to have more than 1 jdk).

Edit: It seems I need to google more about the subject, Tomcat is not running :(
