Hello all, I am preparing for scbcd. I use jboss 4 in my work. My question is Can I use Jboss for the testings that I do to test some problems of scbcd? You know, you always have to run small code snippet for building your conception. Can jboss4 be used exactly like j2ee1.3 sdk?
You need to check which version of ejb spec does jboss4 support. If, say for example, you use some features in ur bean which are not part of ejb2.0, but your jboss supports them because of higher spec version support, you might not get that indication.
Agree with Ankit. And RI, in J2EE 1.3 RI, means Reference implementation.
This means Sun's 1.3 RI server does exactly what the spec demands, and does not do anything else (no extra functionalities).
If you use JBoss (or any other EJB container), you may be able to use extra functionnalities which are not part of EJB specs, and it may mislead you in exam question ("Does EJB spec provide funtionality XXX?" And you answer yes because Jboss did, but the answer is no because spec does not say it's mandatory).
That's why J2EE 1.3 RI should be use and no other EJB container, unless you perfectly know the spec and know what your EJB container gives you that is not in the spec.
