My fellow Ranchers,

How are you all?

I have a big problem that I am facing now. I took my SCWCD last week. Now I am going to study EJB.

But!

I have *zero* experience in EJB/JavaBeans.

I took this book "Developing JavaBeans" (O'reilly) and read 2-3 chapters and understood this is *NOT* what I am looking for. (I got this idea that JavaBeans is different and Enterprise JavaBeans is different, correct me if I am wrong)

I am looking forward to study *EJB*.

Where can I start studying. I am *NOT* looking forward to taking certification right now. I want to study technology first. I need to lay a good foundation! Please help me.

Please give me the names of any books that would do justise to a starter like me.

All your responses are really really appreciated.

Hello S Subramonyan,

Try Oreilly's "Head First EJB" or "Enterprise JavaBeans, 4th Edition".

The best way to learn, once you have a good book, is to practise. I would therefore advise you to choose a J2ee server to practise with. (Jonas or Jboss are two open-source app servers you could practise ejbs with at no cost).

Oreilly's "Enterprise JavaBeans, 4th Edition" describres a plain j2ee app that is interesting to study: the Cruise app. See how it's done. You'll find ports of this app for Jonas and Jboss.

I'll be glad to answer your questions when you start fiddling around. My email is julien-martin@wanadoo.fr

Regards,

Julien.

Bea's Weblogic would also be a great place to start . The bea site has trial downloads and very good documentation . The welogic server itselfs comes with examples application and detailed examples for every type of enterprise bean .
