I do not know anything about EJB while I know JSP and Servlet. Now, I want to start to learn EJB at home, how should I start it? I have downloaded JBoss (with Tomcat). I know it's not easy to set it. How should I set it? Is there any good web site which teaches about the setting of JBoss? I can't find it in web site of JBoss. Moreover, is there any web site which teaches how to write EJB and how to deploy it? Thanks!

Hi stephen
to learn EJBs
1) look at the java j2ee tutorial
2) download and read Ed Roman's Mastering EJBs pdf from http://www.theserverside.com
3)buy and read Ed Roman's Mastering EJBs again with the weblogic example.

for Jboss installation would be quite usefull to look at www.jboss.org in the documantation or forums, you will surely find a lot of answers there.
if those wont be enough, any attempt to search in google under ejb or "ejb tutorial" will bring you enough meterial (372 results).
cheers

I tried lerning with Weblogic. WL has a 30-day free trial version. Ed Roman's book examples weblogic based. Also, Weblogic user groups are VERY helpful if you run into problems. The online docs are also pretty good for WebLogic.
I read Ed Roman first and then Mon-Haefel. Both are excellent books. Ed Roman is easier to read and the flow is just like in a novel. Haefel's book covers some very nice points but it could be hard to digest the first time. His explanations are scattered at several places in the book for a given topic. He does not deal with it fuly at one place. But I feel one should read BOTH books to get a good grip on the subject.
Good Luck and enjoy the magic of EJBs :-)
