Difficulties with deploying my first EJB using the RI

I have installed what I assume is referred to as the Reference Implementation J2EE application server, Sun ONE Application Server. I am now trying to follow the steps in Head First EJB for deploying the first crack at EJBs, AdviceBean et al, and I am unable to find the deploytool which is mentioned in the text on page 32. I have looked in the app server's bin directory and no such tool exists. In fact I have looked in the entire Sun ONE app server heirarchy and can find no such tool. I have tried to deploy this bean using the server's admin console but I can't figure out how to create a new application, make the ejb-jar, or anything else with the options avaiable - it doesn't appear possible to mimic the deploytool functionality.
Can anyone comment or provide any suggestions to get me past this hurdle ?
Thanks in advance !

Howdy James...
This whole thing about the reference implementation is confusing. Sun ONE app server is *not* the reference implementation for EJB 2.0 (although they are using the app server for EJB 2.1/J2EE 1.4).
So, our example is on deploying to the J2EE 1.3 R.I., which comes when you download the J2EE SDK for 1.3 (which is EJB 2.0). I believe that Sun does have a tutorial now for J2EE that DOES use the Sun ONE app server, and you could probably use our beans there without trouble, but they haven't been tested, and the deployment process would be different.
If you want to walk though the deployment of the AdviceBean, using the process we show in the book, then you do need the J2EE 1.3.1 SDK. But... you could certainly use the J2EE tutorials to deploy it to Sun ONE.
Please write back and feel free to write to me directly as well if you want any other help with this...

Thanks Kathy, your response clears things up considerably for me.
Yes, my master! Here is the tiny ad you asked for:
