Hi folks,
I am reading HeadFirst EJB for scbcd exam. I wanted to try the first example in the book. The book insists us to use j2ee 1.3 sdk for the deploy tool and other utilities. However, I want to use j2ee 1.4 sdk as a development tool. But I know that I have to read the EJB 2.0 spec and Api docs, which is not included with the 1.4 version. I have downloaded them ( Ejb 2.0 api and spec ) seperately. I want to use 1.4 only as a development tool. Is that ok? or is there any problem ? Please guide me. Can any seasoned programmer answer this ??

You can also email me at: venkitron@yahoo.com

If you are working from HF EJB and studying for the SCBCD, what do you have to gain from using a 1.4 environment? It is beneficial from a job search standpoint to study whatever is the latest technology out there, but not always a good approach when going for a certification. These exams are tough enough so personally I wouldn't introduce any additional factors that might end up confusing me.

Hello,
However, I am using Windows XP latest version. and j2ee 1.3 doesnt support windows xp. I dont want to take any risk. So I thought I would use j2ee 1.4 sdk. and I have heard that its only the Api and the ejb spec which are all that matters. or am I wrong?? Would that be a serious problem?

please post a reply to this topic.

Since the 1.4 SDK is fully backwards compatible anything written for 1.3 should still work.
You just have to be careful not to use any of the new features in 1.4 inadvertently.

Please tell me how to start j2ee 1.3.1 RI
It is showing error msg as
'C:\Program' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

With Regrads,
Ripul

I guess the solution of your problem is:

Add path c:/windows/system32 to system variables..

hope it works..

by the way sorry for my English

Anytime you set an environment variable in Windows with a space, it needs to be surrounded by quotes. Either that or put it in like c:\Progra~1.

I feel old knowing that we now have people in the field that are not aware of or do not remember the 8.3 naming convention.
