If you want to use just study, I recommend "JBoss"... It's free and you will be able to use with no time limit. But for the industry, "JBoss" cannot beat WebSphere and WebLogic... For me, I am using WebLogic with one year license... I used to use JBoss, but I prefer WebLogic, which is easier to config than JBoss... But if you can grasp "JBoss", then you are the one!!! Just wanna share my opinion...

J2EE RI from java.sun.com is very good for begin in J2EE application(EJB, Servlet, JSP so on)
J2EE 1.3.1 contains :
- j2ee server
- database cloudscape
- deployment tool RI
and so on
I think, All above will help you...

Hello Clyde
I find the J2EE RI good but a bit slow, so make sure you have a really good PC before starting out. Jboss is scarce on documentation(though you may get it at a nominal price from their site).
The way to go maybe the Jboss workbook (one of many workbooks available for various servers) that comes downloadable with examples from Monson-Haefel's "Enterprise Java Beans". This has been the route for me so far, as its easy to get a working example to run first, allowing you to get comfortable with the server. Once you do this, tinker around and try to deploy some of your own beans.
If your intention is to do the SCBCD soon,which is relative to how comfortable you are with Java, then just examples, books (including the much anticipated "Head First Ejb") and specifications should keep you busy for a while. After that, and if licensing is not a problem you could delve into Weblogic or Websphere. I feel that going the hard route without too many IDE's and tools may help you grasp the concepts better.
Hope this helps.

As Ko Ko has already pointed out, Weblogic is probably the most well documented and easy to use app server and it has a 1 year developer license too. If I were you, I w'd go with weblogic.

One thing is that if you have fast internet access and it's convenient to download the WebLogic Server, just download it... I once tried to order the CD, the BEA never ever send me one.. Don't know why... I'm in Thailand and maybe it depends on the regional office too... If you are in U.S or other developed country, it will be alright for you to request a WebLogic CD...

Folks,if you wait for a few months,Apache Geronimo will be released and it will be a breeze to use it as usability and configurability are high on the feature list

Most Java people I know have a soft spot for Apache, so a lot of us are going to be waiting to try out Geronimo. How long is a few months?

That hasnt been decided yet but plans are there to push the first release as soon as possible.EJB Container is there but still not up and running.
Our folks will probably announce the plans and the tentative dates in the upcoming ApacheCon U.S. 2003 event.
Many people volunteered the development but we still need lots of enthusiastic developers as there is a huge list of things in our TODO.I hope to see many of my fellow javaranchers to help the project.

So will it become a rival to JBoss, while JBoss is the only one open source App Server that is free? If Apache Geronimo provide better docs and manuals, I guess surely it will beat JBoss...

There are few other open src app servers like Enhydra,Jonas,OpenEJB(Just a EJB container) and so on.
FYI,Apache Geronimo was started from a forked codebase named elba of JBoss due to licensing problems.Many key committers from the original team of JBoss is now in geronimo group along with the industry leaders like Richard Monson-haefel.
We can talk abt more of this,without sidetracking the SCBCD discussion,in the "Other Open Source Projects" forum
