Okay, I got started much later than desired… I  slept in and watched some shows on my tivo…

I set up a completely clean environment after uninstalling all JREs from previous experiments on my work computer (which I brought home for the weekend)

Java J2SE 1.3.1
Jakarta Tomcat 4.0.6
Jakarta Struts 1.0.2

This is enough for now (uses a barebones XML fake database)… I will eventually swap in some real database support.

Will be using JBuilder 7 as my IDE.

And away we go…
