Good news! On the install, when I didn't enter a serial number, I received the following message:
Swwweeeeeettt! About time they started giving out "Developer editions." The install includes a WAR or EAR file (with samples) - your choice. Basically, it's up to you to deploy - the choice is just which ones you'd like placed on your hard drive for deployment. As a service to my readers - download the war.
BTW, I tried to publish the samples to this site, and it appears that there are some hard-coded
localhost references in *.fla files. I checked all the JSPs and fixed one, but it didn't help. Works great locally on Windows XP, Tomcat 4.0.4, JDK 1.4.1.
