i am lost here, getting started guides to download Java SE DK. Accordingly with the same it says to setup IDE Eclipse for Java EE Developers, but it actually redirects to IDE Eclipse for Java "Standard" Developers.
Sorry about that, I have updated those links.
So question is when should I use Java EE? when to use Java SE?
Java EE is what you should use because it has things like the Maven plugin built in
The Eclipse to use should be correlated with the java edition ? Does Broadleaf works with the latest's java 8 and eclipse luna 4.4 ?
Broadleaf 4.0 (pending release) is the earliest version that supports Java 8 bytecode (like lambda expressions). Broadleaf 3.1.10-GA and 3.0.15-GA both support running on the Java 8 JVM but with Java 7 bytecode. We recommend using the latest version of Eclipse, Eclipse Luna. I have updated the Getting Started link to link to Luna instead of Juno that it was linking to before.
I got all configured but when I try to run jetty-demo, fails.
Can you post the full stack trace? I cannot determine what is going on based on what you posted. It says there are "Multiple Exceptions" but you did not post what those exceptions are.
