Hey all, I've read some of the threads around here and not found a concrete answer for what I'm looking for, so I guess I'll just come out and ask.
I am trying to get started working with EJBs to try and make the whole job search thing a little better (I'm a new grad, but its slim pickins in my area). I'd like to be able to code on my powerbook, but I need to make sure I'm set up right. I've used Apple's tutorial on EJB to install and configure Tomcat and JBoss on my computer. I know how to start the server and all that jazz, my real question just lies in the j2ee class libraries. Is there something else I need to install and configure to make these available. I typically use Eclipse as my IDE, and it does not recognize any of the j2ee packages (javax.ejb.* for instance). Any helpful information would be much appreciated.
I would highly recomend using Ant to build, package, and deploy your project so that it isn't tied to an IDE. Also, if you are set on using Eclipse I would highly recommend adding the MyEclipse plugin for $30. Eclipse without it is missing a lot of things you will wish you had when developing J2EE projects.
