Installing Java EE 6 on Ubuntu/linux

Hi everyone,



I'm trying to get the Java EE SDK 6 installed on Ubuntu Linux. I've downloaded a file named "java_ee_sdk-6u4-unix.sh" from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javaee/downloads/index.html.



When I run the installer using the bash command "sudo sh java_ee_sdk-6u4-unix.sh" an installation wizard pops up, saying "This is a tool for installing Java EE 6 SDK". When I run the installer though, it starts to install "Glassfish server". (I did not ask for this, and it doesn't seem possible to install the SDK without this). And when the installation is complete it lists all the things it installed, including this glassfish server, some other stuff, but "Java EE SDK" is not listed and I can't find the SDK anywhere on my system after closing the installer.



I've spent an hour searching online but can not get this working. I'm confused now, I must be missing something here. Can anyone help me get back on track?
