Hi,

I'm new to the Java world, I come from the Perl world...

I just passed the SCJP, and now want to learn EJB. I bought Head First EJB, and started reading the introduction...

The book says to install the Java SDK, which I did, and also the J2EE 1.3. The reference given is http://java.sun.com/j2ee.

From that page, what do I download exactly, the Sun Application Server ?

And once I've downloaded it, what environment variables (XP) do I need to set so that javac will find the EJB libraries ? I tried compiling the first "advice" demo, and it can't find the EJB stuff...

Thanks for helping me out, I'm sure you'll save me a lot of time !

Jacques.

You downloaded the libraries required by J2EE. An embedded application server (not a production one, but just a development one) comes with the distribution. You'll need to setup J2EE_HOME and to put the J2EE jars into your path.

HTH,
