Hi,

I am new to EJB.

I am studying for the EJB Certification that i will take in about a month or 2 time.

I have the Head First EJB book.
I have gone through the first 100 pages of it.
Which i understand.

But i prefer to dig in and get dirty with code, i.e. instead of reading about it i feel its better to get dirty and write code.
i.e. code some sample ejbs to learn from.
but at the same time as i write code i understand whats going on.

Is there any tutorial for ejb that can help me on this for the certification?

Currently, i have a JBoss App Server.
Eclipse with MyEclipse plugin installed.

Is better with MyEclipse because i started out with the sun app server - deploy tool and it was taking an age for it to deploy anything to the app server. so have found MyEclipse which i find useful.

In the last few days, i have coded an EJB that is basically a stateless session ejb that just sends back data to the Servlet, that i wrote.

Is there any tutorials out there that i can learn EJB by coding?

Thanks,

Niall

"Niall",
Welcome to the JavaRanch.

We're a friendly group, but we do require members to have valid display names.

Display names must be two words: your first name, a space, then your last name. Fictitious names are not allowed.

Please edit your profile and correct your display name since accounts with invalid display names get deleted, often without warning

thanks,
Dave

Sorry to gang up on you, but we also have a forum for the EJB Certification for SCBCD

I am going to move this thread to that forum.

Hi Dave,

Apologies it wasnt up till a minute ago that i realised that the one box was for the full name i.e. first name + surname :-)
anyways updated. :-)

Mark,

Sound. No problem at all. Its better to have structure for a forum.

But i still plead, does anyone know where there is any tutorials for EJB that i can learn by digging into code rather than just reading a book about EJB.

Thanks,

Niall

Can i also add that i did the SCJP programmer exam last april and got 88% in it.

After a month a half of studying which i enjoyed.

I just hope to get on to right road for the ejb exam.

Hi,
you are preparing for SCBCD 1.3 or SCBCD 5.0 beta ?
If it is 1.3 HFEJB(present edtion) suits the syllabus(ejb 2.0).Else you may have to choose a different approach.
