Glassfish is bundled in Netbeans so you should be able to practice without installing anything else.

In the EJB3 in Action book in the Appendix E chapter they mentioned on how to run the examples(ActionBazaar) explained in the book and it is totally about installing JAVA EE SDK and using ANT tool.

Please tell me how to run those examples with the use of Netbeans 6.0.
Currently i am in Chapter 4 but did not run practice those example.

Please help me.

Thanks
Sudhakar

First understand the JEE architecture,

To run a ejb you only need an ejb container (+ your ejb). You can use NB for developing your ejbs. but i dont suggest NB deployment for EJB specially for the exam.

Please clarify my doubt.

Thanks

If you don't know ho to use Netbeans, why don't you follow the instructions in the book instead ? If you want to ask about Netbeans, I'll move this thread to the IDE forum.

Christophe,

I am working on Testing which i really dont like so i am learning Java on my own.so far i have cleared SCJP and SCWCD and now preparing for SCBCD.In our company we cannot install any software we need, with great difficulty i got the approval from my manger to install Netbeans on my machine.


If you don't know ho to use Netbeans, why don't you follow the instructions in the book instead ?


If i just follow the instructions in the book i have to install Java EE SDK and i have to get approval from my manager to install that also which is very difficult and he may question like why do you need this?

I know how to use Netbeans to create and EJBs but i want to know how to run the examples given in the book.When i tried to open that examples using Netbeans it is treating them a just files not as project.I think that Chapter folders have Ant build files and etc.

I think this all may sound bit strange but interest towards JAVA is forcing me to do this.Please help this Java Aspirant.

Thanks
Sudhakar

Thanks Chris,

As i am a non-java(QA) guy I have no firends here in office or at home who can help me out from these kind of issues so i depend on forums. I have registered on almost 10 different forums.I dont know if i get a chance to work on Java or not in the future?

Thanks
Sudhakar
