Hi everyone -

I'm about to learn the EJBs spec after just finishing my JSP and Servlet certification.

I don't imagine I'll be working in and EJB projects for at least the next 12 months so I really want to learn the 3.0 version so I'll be more "futureproofed".

There seem to be a number of good books out there... but my question is what app server is the best to use?

(By best I mean simpliest and easiset to learn on for the complete beginner)

Thanks
Mark

The best option could be Glassfish as it is Java EE 5 compliant.
for IDE you can take a look at netbeans .

Hi Mark-
Despite my undeniable bias , I would recommend Oracle's JDeveloper IDE. It bundles OC4J, which is the pure Java EE portion of Oracle's iAS application server, so you have an integrated package for developing, deploying, testing, and debugging your Java EE 5 applications.

JDev 10.1.3.1 just went public with full support for the final release of the EJB 3 spec, and you can download it for free.

Regards,
Jon

Jon,
Is the release finalized? It was still in pre-release when we had a conversation about the App Server used for the book in that thread.

As I mentioned in that thread, I've never tried JDev before. Is the deverloper version free or is there any enterprise version? I hope the version that is free can easily be used with the project files coming with the book.

Thanks!
