This thread mentions two books worth of considering, of which "Mastering EJB" is available as a free PDF from TSS.
Tomcat won't cut it for EJBs as it's only a Web container and you need an EJB container. I'd suggest downloading JBoss, which is open source and has a wide user base out there to help you -- at our own JBoss forum, for example, or at jboss.org.

Tomcat is working on their own EJB container and may release it in the near future. Since there are lots of webservers out there running Tomcat, may be they seek to provide a complete solution. Not sure why they are going after this as there are lots of good freebies already out there, like JBoss!!! IBM have their own http server and a webserver as the front end for Websphere appserver.

You mean Apache is working on their own EJB container (Geronimo), right?

Sun's tutorials for j2ee1.3 and 1.4 are very good for beginners. They have good examples that you can run and get a feel for.

Hi,
The Serverside is a great place for tutorials. Sun's tutorials and Docs are ofocurse essential. One great place to get better clarified is our Java ranch.
Cheers,
Gaya3
