beginning java questions

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm getting into Java from C/C++ with zero knowledge because somebody has left behind a bunch of files I want to look at and possibly extend or port over to C++.

What is the best IDE, I heard Netbeans and Eclipse were some options.

What should I get EE or SE?

Whenever I try to install they want me to install Glassfish and a whole bunch of other crazy stuff and to open up different ports. What is this Glassfish and why would I need it?

Glassfish is an opensource application server and the reference implementaiton for servlets, you don't need it unless you want to write servlets, jsp applications or some other Java EE stuff.
