Hi All,

I am core java programmer moved to J2EE.

Please let me know what are the software stuffs required to run J2EE and where can i get them for free.

How to start with J2EE?
I have a Head First book on Servlets and JSP.

An example program and steps to execute them would be more helpful.

Thanks in Advance!

Well, good start! But I'm quite sure, that in HFSJ book si more than just opening a single jsp page in a browser.

You can play with session tracking. You can make a simple application.

What exactly do you want to know in JBoss? Do you want to know how to deploy applications in JBoss or is it anything else?

Well, there are really only two J2EE components you can develop: Servlets and EJBs. To master J2EE development, you need to master the development of these two components.

I have a few multimedia tutorials that demonstrate how to create and test basic J2EE components. You should check them out - they're short and to the point, and they are accompanied by code:

Multimedia Tutorials on J2EE Development (Servlets, EJBs, J2EE Services and Deployment)





For learning J2EE, the Head First Java books are the best way to go:

Head First Java

Head First Servlets and JSP Development

Head First EJB

Have fun learning J2EE. It's powerful stuff!

Hey no offense but you are going to learn EJB, Servlets, JSPs, and struts in 2 weeks? To what end? So you can rattle off facts about them that you can't possibly grasp yet?

Slow down, take your time, and really learn what you are talking about. Then I might have less conversations with other so called Senior J2EE developers who say Bean Managed Transactions aren't part of the J2EE spec.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
