Best Setup for a Java EE Developer Machine

view full story

http://askubuntu.com – I have a dual-boot machine, Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04. When I'm using Windows, I have a C:\dev directory that, say, is my "root folder" under which I have all the tools (C:\dev\jdk1.7 for JDK, C:\dev\eclipse for Eclipse and so on). How can I setup something (functional and) similar in my Ubuntu, say, under my /home folder? Are there some kind of "best setup" for a linux-based Java EE developer machine? Thanks in advance.
