I don't want to have to download and update GlassFish as I don't use it!So what do you use then?

Ah I see. However, if there really isn't a Java EE SDK then perhaps Oracle should rename/remove the JavaEE SDK Page:
It would really help to remove any confusion.

My apologies if this is considered a hijack of this thread, but there has been no activity for awhile, and I was looking forward to an answer.
Anywise, I have exactly the same issue, I wish to install the JavaEE SDK on a Windows system but I have no need for GlassFish and do not want to be encumbered by it. To answer gimbal2's question, my intent is to deploy servlets on an Apache Tomcat server. And I need access to a number of classes and their methods, which are blocked due to security access restrictions in a SE JRE. So a Java SE SDK/JDK will not fit my needs. How can one get a JavaEE SDK for Windows without the GlassFish application server?As I said, there is NO JEE SDK. What classes do you need? Tomcat itself provides the servlet-api jar, which if you want to deploy on Tomcat is all you basically need to be able to compile servlet stuff. If you use an IDE like Netbeans or Eclipse, setting up the proper project type (which will be similar to "java web project") will likely already setup all the jars you need too. Let me stress that Tomcat is in no way a JEE container, it is merely a servlet engine. It can service simple web applications only.
