    Is Enterprise Edition suitable??


    I'm about to begin a MSc Degree project and I'm thinking of using Java Enterprise
    Editions to create Servlets and JSPs for a contacts database that would be
    accessed over the web. Will it be possible to have the server and client
    running on the same machine for development purposes? That way I can develop
    it at home.

    Also, how do I get a copy of Enterprise Edition is it downloadable from the
    Sun site or is it huge and rediculously expensive.

    Any advice would be great.

    Thanks

    You could of course do that. However, if you want to do such a project, you
    should also have a look at Cocoon, the publishing framework from the Apache
    group (http://xml.apache.org/cocoon).

    Instead of using JSP you would use XSP which is better designed. You can
    create XML documents that are transformed on the server into HTML, WML or
    PDF using XSL stylesheets. Cocoon is free and written in pure Java. It's
    like a big servlet.

    You could use it with J2EE as well. Like calling EJB objects from your XSP
    pages. I find XSP much more flexible than JSP.
    Cocoon is in version 1.7.4 (3.2 megs) but Cocoon 2 is in development. This
    will have to be taken into account if it's a year project (which Cocoon will
    you write for).

    It's free and it's about 12megs (+ 7 megs docs).
