is a free, open source, comprehensive and standards-based
Java(TM)/J2EE(TM) development suite distribution for building
enterprise application. It is based on leading Open Source web
servers, containers, frameworks, utilities, database and
integrated development editor. The distribution will not in any way hinder your usage of any of the open source packages individually. Instead, it serves to help you use the packages easily.

does it do?
Platform, Enterprise Edition(TM) has firmly been established
as a mainstream development platform for enterprise
applications. This platform greatly simplifies enterprise
applications. The open source development model has also
proven its ability to create competitive and cost-effective
solutions and highly scalable solutions. Many open source
packages exist today to assist in the development of J2EE
based application. This has brought about great benefits to
the IT industry. However, as the packages are developed by
different individuals and entities, each has it's own setup,
installation procedures and documentation.
to make use of these excellent tools and applications it
requires them to spend substantial time and effort to setup,
install, test and evaluate these softwares.
distribution comes with a installer to ease this entire setup
process. It aims to install and configure all the software
packages to help developers easily make use of the software
packages within the shortest time possible.
developers and IT departments can quickly and easily make use
of open source packages to start developing J2EE based
are the Open Source packages included:
commercial-grade reference, efficient, extensible
implementation of the HTTP protocol. The most popular HTTP
application server with highly flexible service oriented
architecture and microkernel approach based on Java Management
eXtensions (JMX). Tomcat is the official Reference
Implementation of the Servlet and JavaServer Pages
software development project dedicated to providing a robust,
full-featured, commercial-quality, industry platform for the
development of highly integrated tools.
structuring the web application into
Model-View-Controller(MVC) model. Loose coupling between the
View and Model can make applications significantly easier to
create and maintain.
engine/framework for constructing SOAP processors such as
clients, servers, gateways.
a variety of logging API implementations.
application designed to load test functional behavior and
measure performance. It has the ability to record web requests
from the browser and replay the entire sequences while
simulating multiple users.
plug-in that handles the communication between Tomcat and
source database with the capabilities to handle most corporate
database application requirements with an architecture that is
extremely fast and easy to use.
Type IV Java
driver that converts JDBC (Java Database Connectivity) calls
into the network protocol used by the MySQL database.
purpose Java-based template engine. Velocity separates Java
code from the web pages via the Model-View-Controller(MVC)
model, making the web site more maintainable over the long
build tool like make. For building software across multiple
logging at runtime without modifying the application binary.
The log4j package is designed so that logging statements can
remain in shipped code without incurring a heavy performance
cost. Logging behavior can be controlled by editing a
configuration file, without touching the application binary.
