    Default building a web-based tracking application in java

    I am building a web-based tracking application in Java. I want to use Google APIs. What do I need for that?

    1) Java SE or Java EE?
    2) JSF?
    3) Struts? Hibernate?

    You have really strange questions. You want create a web-app and in the same time you ask about type app "Java SE or Java EE?".
    What kind of aim do you want to use Google API?

    I am new to this. I have just done object-oriented programming in Java. I have not done any server side programming and I have no idea what is required for the development of such an application.

    I want to use Google Map APIs to view mobiles I am tracking.

    Do I need to install Java EE?

    Will I need JSF, Struts, Hibernate?

    Thanks.

    If you're doing a web-based application, and you want to work in Java, you should look at Google Web Toolkit.

    Google Web Toolkit - Google Code

    You write your code in Java, and it gets compiled into cross-browser-compatible JavaScript. You don't need JavaEE, Struts, Hibernate, or even Java really, although you can certainly use it in conjunction with any of those. You'll probably want to use Eclipse or SpringSource Tool Suite (which is really Eclipse with other stuff added) as that's what's used in the tutorials.

    If I do not want to use Google Web ToolKit,will I need Struts, JSF and Hibernate as well? Is Struts enough or will I need Hibernate or something else to store information in a relational database?

    So You just don't understand for what you use Hibernate and Struts.
    You can use Struts for create flexible model your app, Struts uses MVC pattent for manage model. and you can use Hibernate for flexible integrate with database.
