Hello,

I'm still stuck in the Dark Ages with my Windows 98 computer and I was wondering if there are any application servers compatible with J2EE 1.3 that would work on this system. I only need an AS that I could use while studying for SCBCD.

Thank you in advance,
Yuriy

Hi Yuriy,

Have you checked out the TSS Application Server Matrix ?

valentin,

that is a pretty cool resource! my friend and i were just today talking about all the app servers out there. sent him the link.

do you have any feel on which app server is "best" for messing around with as part of prepping for the scbcd? i'm keen to using the time spent studying to get some familiarity with a popular server product, but do not want to deal with something so difficult as to slow down my taking the test.

i've used weblogic for work. websphere likely has a free download and is the another of the biggest beasts out there. but then there is jboss, jonas, geronimo....

That Matrix is pretty cool,

I just noticed that Head First EJB recommends the Reference Implementation server that comes with the J2EE SDK. I got supposedly Win98 compatible .bat files for it from http://fieldbird.com/J2EETools/Downloads/InstallJ2EETools.jar , but haven't tested them yet.

Hi,

I'm glad the TSS Matrix helped you. As for the SCBCD exam, I would *strongly* advise to use Sun's Reference Implementation for messing around with EJBs as it is the implementation on which everything included in the EJB spec has been tested.
