Hi,
I have purchased a voucher for the BCD exam. I am very new to EJB. Currently I have started reading Enterprise Javabeans by RMH. Is there a place where I can come to know about
1)downloading an IDE(Do you suggest this or do you suggest typing the code in a notepad?)
2)Downloading the server?
3)Sample tutorials to write a 'hello world' program and deploy it.

Thanks,
Lakshmi.

Hi,

You can refer to Head First EJB book by K&B. It is very helpful. This book suggests you can download J2EE RI server for practice.

For free production-ready & J2EE certified servers, you could either try JBoss or Jonas. My suggestion is not to use any IDEs yet for helping you to create the interfaces & bean class. Some IDEs automate too much until you'd miss out on a lot of required knowledge for the exams. But if you're interested, try the JBoss-IDE, its a plugin for use with Eclipse. Both being free.

Anyway, there's a link at the top for SCBCD materials, do check it out. And reading the specifications, does help.

Thank you all.

How is this exam? Does it require a lot of practice like the SCJP?
