Java is owned by oracle [sic] now so the site you download the sdk [sic] from
should be plastered with the evil that is oracle [sic].

Tomayto, tomahto.

These days when people say "Sun site" they mean "that part of Oracle
that used to be Sun site", as you well know.

It's a perfectly valid, if informal way to refer to that subset of the
Oracle web presence.

As to Oracle being evil, "Judge not lest ye be judged."

I would suggest that what you may need is Java JDK and a seperate
server such as Tomcat which is more standard that Glassfish. The more
common the server you work with the more help you'll find on google.

Terrible suggestion. There's nothing particularly "nonstandard" about
GlassFish - it works mostly the same as all the other Java EE
application servers out there. Yes, there are differences, but mostly
one of interface details, not core concepts or programming concepts,
or even libraries if you code to "java.*" and "javax.*" packages.
Tomcat is an excellent product, but it's standardness is not of much
use if you want dependency injection, EJBs, JMS queues, inbuilt
JavaMail, and other enterprise features not present in Tomcat but
supported by the big-iron server products.

Furthermore, the market demand for "just Tomcat" is a small part of
the job market for Java developers, one very large part of which is
enterprise programming, and those guys use GlassFish, WebSphere,
WebLogic, JBoss and others. You'd better have skills in platforms
that go beyond Tomcat if you want the big bucks.
