I just joined a software firm as a "trainee". I have to learn J2EE but on my own. Can the members give me some links to good websites and also recommend some books using which I can learn these technologies quickly?

Any help is much appreciated.
Thanks and regards,
Rajneesh

Welcome to JavaRanch Rajneesh.

First, just a little bit of forum ettiqute that will help you out here at the ranch. When starting a new topic, put a descriptive title on it so other ranchers will know what the post is actually about. Titles such as "Please Help" or "Urgent" don't say anything about your problem, and are likely to be passed over by people reading the posts.

Second, congrats on your job. What is your current level of experience in java? What is your current level of experience in j2ee? This will help me better recommend books or training sites. Also, The Bunkhouse here at the ranch contains links and reviews for a lot of books. That might be a good place to look as well.

Finally, for my money, I think the best books out there are the Head First books. Not only do they teach you the technology in a refreshing way, but some also prepare you for the Sun Certification exams.

So which part of J2EE do you need to learn?

For instance, this forum is for Servlets, so the Servlets section of J2EE is covered here.

There there is EJBs which is different technology in J2EE.

Each takes time to learn and you will need to start off by focusing on one of those areas.

Hello dear friends,

First of all let me apologize for the obscure title of this topic, that I posted, and thanks to Dave for changing it.

Let me tell you something about muself. I came to the US in 2000, and have since earned a master's degree in computer science. I took a Java class 5 years ago as part of the degree program, so I know a little bit about it. I have to brush up.

I have just been given a book: "Professional Java Server programming: J2EE edition" by Allamadaraju et al. How good is it? Also are there any good websites?

Thanks,
Rajneesh

riyaz udeen,
I mentioned this in one of your other threads, but I believe it it is worth repeating: please UseRealWords.

The reasons are listed in the link provided, but your posts are very difficult to read.

thanks.
Dave.

Could someone explain to me in simple language what a "container" is? I could not understand this concept. In the book I am reading (mentioned earlier by me in this thread) the following statement appears:

...A container is a Java 1.2 (Java Standard Edition 1.2) runtime for application components.

This also begs the question, what does runtime mean?

A container is the engine that runs a servlet/jsp app.

Tomcat is a Servlet container.
The term is roughly equivalent to App Server.

Specifically, it's the portion of an AppServer that handles Servlets and JSP.

JBoss, which is a full application server, uses Tomcat as it's servlet/jsp container.
