    What do I need to setup a JAVA Dev Environment


    My employer has moved entirely from the VB world over to JAVA and I would
    like to improve my development skills from home but don't know where to begin.

    I'm looking for a comprehensive list of Software that I would need to configure
    a multi-tier Java & Oracle environment. I have a PC that I would use for
    development and as a client (browser) but I also have two additional PCs
    that I could use for mid-tier and database??? If you could, please let me
    know how I should configure each machine.

    Any information is greatly appreciated.
    Thanks - Garen

    You can do it all on one PC. In fact it is probably best. That way you can
    rule out network/machine communication problems. You will want to test on
    a scenario that emulates production.

    If you use any current Java IDE you will want to have a current PC with a
    good amount of RAM.

    Are you doing Java at work ( I know your employer moved to it) or just want
    to learn it at home? If you use it at work then you should be able to use
    a copy of what you are using at work.

    IDEs like WSAD come with everything you need to build enterprise applications.
    If you use NetBeans you will need to get an Application server and a database
    (Oracle if you desire). The way I build applications - the database doesn't
    matter. You can down load JBOSS which is an open source app server.

    More important to learning is learning good OOD/OOP. VB has limited OO capabilities
    but is a good stepping stone for those who can step. But it IS different.
    Learning OOD and OOP is very important and will justify your employers move
    to Java. That and the fact he/she has freed themselves from the single vendor
    world.

    Tell me more about your situation, what your employer is using and what your
    knowledge level is and I will try to suggest/help more.
