just a couple of questions:

I need to learn EJB is the "head first EJB" still pretty relevant or do I need to augment it with something more current.

can I still get J2EE with the RI from sun's website? (I had problems finding it...)

thanks!

hey Richard, I started out with Head First EJB with absolutely no EJB experience. It was fun to read and never required any other reference book. After having some experience with EJB's now I still feel its one of the best books on EJB and refer to it quite often. The diagrams make it easy and fun to read. But thats just me!!!

Abdulla,

that's cool, I did like the "head first java" but EJB was printed in 2003, which seems like quite awhile ago...

and can you still get the J2EE setup used by the book?

thanks!

Richard, I highly recommend the Head First EJB book, because you will learn about the heartaches of EJB 2.x and then you can see how much EJB 3.0 is nicer to code.
