Confused about Java and Glassfish

    I just downloaded the Java Development Kit (J2EE) and during the install I was asked to configure something called Glassfish. I don't understand what Glassfish is for. Is it only for Web development? What does it do for me?

    Glassfish is a full J2EE application server where you, not surprisingly, can run your J2EE applications. You can easily find the Glassfish site by using Google.
