Hi all,
Please help....
i need guidance, i m working on jsp using tomcat .but now i want to learn EJB also. Suggest me how to start. to run EJB is weblogic must or we can use somethong else also?
I have installed weblogic 5.1 , is it sufficient for learning or shall i go for the latest version 6.0
what else is required to run/deploy a ejb. is there any site related to this....
which is the best book for a person who is very new to EJB like me?
I have already bought EJB by O'reilly.

thanks in advance,
Deepika

Hi,
Weblogic 5.1 is good enough to learn ejb.Their documentation is very good on how to deploy beans on weblogic.Also you can use a tool StructureBuilder which would create ejbs,then you can edit those files(remote,home,bean,pk) and see what actually should be there in the code.You can start with container managed persistence as it is easier to learn.You would also need a database since entity beans cannot exist without db(weblogic has cloudscape evaluation).I think oreilly book is good enough but some people have suggested books by addison-wesley publishers.Also Mastering Enterprise Java Beans by Ed roman has very good examples.
Enjoy!!

what is the best free/trial version IDE for writing EJB's .
Mastering EJB is not available in low price edition, so i can't afford it.

I prefer using StructureBuilder for writing EJBs.This tool also comes with VisualCafe IDE which you can download for trial ,or you can download just StructureBuilder separately.It is good for creating CMP entity beans.For BMPs and Session Beans you can get a basic structure created,after that you have to anyway write the code.
If you intend to use weblogic,then its better to use VisualCafe IDE,since they have built in capabilities to deploy beans in weblogic from the IDE.
