I am interested in Enterprise Edition 1.3 (CX-310-090).

I set up my eclipse IDE for practising EBJ2.0 exercise. I am wondering if the IDE is good enough for doing exercises for book of 'Head First EJB'?

or what's the requirement of IDE in 'Head First EJB' ?

Thanks in advance.

There's no requirement whatsoever. You can use any editor. Some, like Netbeans (and I'm sure MyEclipse does that too) will help you to start/stop the bean container.

Why don't you consider EJB 3 and the new SCBCD 5 exam?

OK, I will consider EJB 3 and the new SCBCD 5 exam.

another question is.....
I followed IDE set-up installation according to Mikalai Zaikin's SCBCD 5.0 Study Guide, will I be able to use it to practicse exercises in HeadFirst EJB book which is target to EJB2 ?

Thanks

Hi Jothi,

Why do you recommend the new EJB exam? Here's why I ask:

1 - The new exam is NOT a superset of the old exam. In other words knowing how to use new EJBs doesn't mean that you know how to use old EJBs.

2 - A lot of companies are NOT going to switch to new EJBs anytime soon.

Installing part on Mikalai Zaikin's SCBCD 5.0 Study Guide is super.

I check MZ's SCBCD1.3 study guide, it does not have installing part. Does anybody know a good reference of installation setup for practising SCBCD1.3 or does the HeadFirst EJB have?

The reason I am asking is becasue I'd like to practice both new and old technology. I would prefer some hands-on exercise before I take exams.

Thanks

There's no particular editor used in Head First EJB. But you are shown how to install and use the Java Reference Server (J2EE RI 1.3.1) and its DeployTool at the begin. Make sure to get the appropriate version, as told you here.

Hi,

MZ's Notes are superb. The Installation part is for old version of IDE. The new version already included Java EE perspective. So you can test your application without the patch mentioned in the Installation Guide.

Hi,

I am using NetBean 6.0. I am not discussing which is better IDE, But most of the times I am using NetBean and I found it is easier to use particularly while developing enterprise applications, developing the clients, calling EJBs into clients etc.

Thanks
