Hello,
I would like to know about real life development environments.
-Do people use Forte, Jbuielder or what tool I need to study.I have to say that I have a Jbuilder copy and I consider it worse than bad.
-Application server. Related with previous questions.Is weblogic used at development at the same time you use Forte or similar products,or the app. server it is used at deployment time?
-Are you supposed to be Database expert? What is the most common required database:Oracle,cloudscape,...
-Do you use tools such as TopLInk?
-How many technicall people are involved in a EJB project development?
-I am thinking about get certified in XML.Is is demanded??
-Whatever you can think of related to these topics please.
Thanks.

- If your machine doesn't have 256MB RAM, you should try other light IDE like JCreator. It's free. The lightest IDE for java, in my opinion, is TextPad.
- most app. server comes with it's own deployment tool.
- No, you don't have to be DBA level expert. But you must know RDBMS basics such as SQL, Entity relationship (ERD), etc. Knowledge of Transaction is a plus.
- Number of people in EJB dev. depends on the scale of the project.
- XML is really hot in today's distributed technologies. It's worth to become certified in XML field.
Hope it helps.

I'm not sure about IDEs. I would say people like IBM Visual Age for Java, Borland JBuilder and Oracle JDeveloper.
As my personal preference, I like Oracle JDeveloper. But it should be used on 256+ MB RAM machine.
Databases : I would say Oracle, Sybase and IBM DB2.
But I think your targeted project environment size, complexity and performance requirement should be the main factors when you decide which DB to use.
Personal preference : I like Oracle. I also like Oracle 9iAS J2EE container. It's fast!
