Hi,

I'm new to Java development and have been looking at the WTP tutorial found at http://www.eclipse.org/webtools/community/tutorials/BuildJ2E EWebApp/BuildJ2EEWebApp.html. I do not see the J2EE web project option under Web when I click on New Project.

I have the J2EE Runtime Library defined in the server runtime environments box, pointing it to C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_20\lib. Can I get some guidance on what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks!
Brian

Brian,

J2EE is an aging reference that harks back to Java 1.2. While still in
frequent use, it's JEE we're really using now.

What you're looking for is Dynamic Web Project. It's under the Web
folder (after Other) when you're trying to create a new project (New ->
Other -> Web -> Dynamic Web Project).

You might check out the Setting up... articles under "Eclipse-oriented"
at http://www.javahotchocolate.com for how to set up Tomcat to consume
the JDK you chose.

The tutorial you're using is a little long in the tooth. It was created
pre-Europa and two years ago I found it hard to follow. Naci's a rock
star and I have one of his books. I ended up writing and publishing my
own tutorial, which is also getting long in the tooth, but you can see
it at the link above. Last, Lars Vogel has great tutorials at
http://www.vogella.de too.

Best of luck and come back here when you have questions,


Russ Bateman

Russ,

Thanks so much. I'll take a look at the other tutorials that you suggested. Like I said earlier, I'm a newbie and it seems that I made a newbie mistake. I was using the incorrect version of Eclipse. It appears that I need to download the eclipse-jee-galileo-SR2-win32 version as opposed to the eclipse-java-galileo-SR2-win32 version.

Thanks Again,
Brian
