I want to develop a java-ee-maven-wicket-postgresql application on Windows!

What you’ll need:
– A windows environment ( WinXP or Win7 are recommended )
– A ‘recently enough’ version of JDK of Java. ( 6u29 )
– A ‘recently enough’ version of PostgreSQL ( 9.1.0-1 )
– A ‘recently enough’ version of  Netbeans ( 7.0.1 )
– A ‘recently enough’ version of Maven 2, Standalone installer(because accessing the build-in maven of netbeans via cmd is surprisingly hard ). ( 3.0.3 )
– A ‘recently enough’ version of Wicket ( 1.5.3 )

Begin with installing the JDK, I’m using version 1.6u29, since I’ve read rumours about that version 7 isn’t stable enough yet. Time will tell. I didn’t tried to install Java EE SDK including Glassfish, because NetBeans has an embedded Glassfish instance at its own.

Please note that you don’t have to install pgAdmin ( the admin tool for your PostgreSQL DB ), it’s already included in the PostgreSQL installer.

Note that you’ve to unpack Maven by yourself, and don’t forget to add it to your (system) path of your system environment, create also two new system environment variables: JAVA_HOME ( preferably  C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\ WITHOUT quotes ) and CLASSPATH ( .;%JAVA_HOME%\lib ).
