I am a total stranger to EJB. Can anyone please suggest a good book on EJB and J2EE for starters (DOWNLOADABLE FROM THE WEB). Also, I would like to know if there is a bare skeleton application server for trying out ejbs? Please help...

I think you should try EJB in weblogic server trial version is freely available. Also Jonas server is available to run with Apache server. I can't help you about books online.

That's TheServerside. Download Mastering EJB.pdf That's very good book written by Ed Roman.

well, you can print a general pdf. but, Mastering EJB, NO. Its non-printable. The pdf is precisely for reading from your hard disk.

Hi,
For a beginner, its good to start on www.ejbtut.com
You can use Blazix server, which is very small in size(around 1.5MB)
http://www.blazix.com/BlazixEjbServer.html
It teaches with a wizard. So less headache for coding at the first stage.

Regards,
Sanjeev Kaushik

My suggestion is that the J2EE tutorial from sun's site is a good material to start with and the J2EE reference implementation is good app server for beginner.
Best Regards,
Ashoke

I am also a starter of EJB. I was planning to learn it using JBoss, but here I got a good lightweight option Blazix. Lemme see it and then decide....

I have been through 107 pages of Mastering EJB2 By Ed Roman. I found the book quiet good for beginners since the author has gone right from the basics . I feel its a good book for beginners. Has anyone used Blazix App server?

If you wanna test EJB.. you can download WebSphere Application server 4.0 single server edition available for download on the IBM site.. and it works superbly

I wrote a tutorial that I think you should check out. I am a little bias so I included comments from other folks.
(The tutorial comes with PDFs that you can print out as well as online material.)
Here is what people thought

Achim from Germany writes: "I read your white papers "Introducing EJB-CMP/CMR" part 1 and part 2.... These papers are the best start for EJB.... Now I'm very interested in part 3 (and 4), but I can't find them on the developerWorks Homepage ..." (They are out and ported to JBoss and WebLogic.)
Pete from North Carolina writes: "I've been working through your "Introducing EJB-CMP/CMR" tutorials. Great stuff. Well presented - simple and straight forward. Really learning a lot. "
Patrick from the U.S.A. writes: "Great Job on part 1 and 2 of your tutorial on CMP/CMR and EJB QL. When will part 3 and 4 be out.? Will it be able to run on JBoss Resin, and Orion." (It is done! Part 3 and 4 works with WebLogic and JBoss. I got the examples working with WebLogic and Peter got them working with JBoss. --Rick)
Chintan writes “...thank you for putting out fabulous quality CMP/CMR tutorial. This is the best tutorial I have ever seen. Complete, concise and clear. (Where is the source?) (The source code is at the bottom of this page.)”
"Thanks Rick for such a fine tutorial.
It was great to learn from your writing.
Keep writing so that many of us can benefit from your articles." says Rahul Pawar
Martin Kempkes says "...thanks for your tutorial on EJB CMP/CMR. I read them all and was able to program my first simple application within a few days. Nice work!"


Let me know what you think.

Did you get a chance to check it out?
Part 5 has a step by step guide to using XDoclet.
Can you send a list of links you did use?
