I've got basic to intermediate knowledge of java and would like to install a j2ee server on my debian machine. Can anyone tell me what I need or point me in the right direction to a good tutorial?

As it currently stands, this question is not a good fit for our Q&A format. We expect answers to be supported by facts, references, or expertise, but this question will likely solicit debate, arguments, polling, or extended discussion.

Asking for tutorials is generally not a good idea, as the tutorials get out of date quickly, and are of little use to future visitors. Instead, if you have a specific question about where you're stuck, feel free to ask another question outlining exactly where you're stuck. – Mark Henderson Jan 23 '12 at 10:43

Might want to start with Glassfish. Here's a good quickie tutorial on how to install it on debian.

do I need to run this in conjunction with tomcat or apache? Do you know any tutorials on creating your first j2ee aplication? – madphp Aug 10 '09 at 19:46
@Mark D - You might want to look into downloading the NetBeans development environment. It will come with a number of pre-built examples that you can look at. – Eric Petroelje Aug 10 '09 at 20:40
