Two major areas in J2EE - jsp & servlets for web apps, and EJB for transactional apps (and more...). Totally different areas. Which one do you need first?

Hey Aneesh,
I'm new to J2ee too - just started learning it a few weeks ago.
If you already know Java & HTML, the basics of JSP are fairly simple, so you could probably learn it as you go through J2ee. A bit of background reading and some exercises probably wouldn't do any harm though.
I've found two tutorials so far, neither of which are perfect! The most comprehensive is that supplied by Sun, you can download it, along with Sun J2ee SDK, from: http://java.sun.com/j2ee/download.html
Orion also provide a J2ee server that's free for non-comercial use, along with a pretty crappy tutorial, which you can find at: http://www.orionserver.com/

Hope this helps,
P.

Hi
Was planning to learn j2ee to enhance my resume.
So any way would be fine hardy . I think i ll start with jsp since i am somewhat familier with java and html.
And thanks for the links .. let me download them and start now..
Will see more u people soon ..
And Albinoni please let me know about ur method of study ...
I think best way is to do a sample project.
Any ideas..
How about a digital library system or something lke that??
That is using webpeople can find what books are there in a library , read aout the boks, pay yearly membership rent , reserve books , get it by hand or have it delivered etc etc...
If u have some other ideas let me know .
Anyways thanks..
Aneesh

Totally agree with you there. That's exactly how I'm learning it.

there's the cattle drive here at java ranch. I think for the basics, you always should do a tutorial, so that you get a good overview. Then doing a project after that.
For doing web-apps, you'll have to know HTML & CSS as well, and javascript. There are lots of sites around to teach you those.
Try
W3Schools
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
