Hello,

My object is to learn J2EE as quickly as possible. For that I have installed Eclipse. Could you suggest some good website or source for learning this technology? I want to start by writing a simple database access application. Are there resources on the web for doing that?

My current skills: Object-oriented programming, C++, Java.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Rajneesh

J2EE is a HUGE subject. There's no way to learn all of it quickly (and there's probably to learn all of it, period). Suns Java web site is a good starting point -java.sun.com-, and if you want to tackle database apps first -the API to do that is called JDBC-, go to java.sun.com/products/jdbc. Of course, there is a JDBC forum right on JavaRanch, so you might give that a try.

Generally J2EE is quite simple, you can pick it up on a fly by modifying or creating J2EE project. I'd suggest to start with classical pet shop example you can find on Sun's web site.

I would like to underline the response of Rathi.

I agree with him. The head first servlets and JSP book from Bates/Sierra will help you a lot.

regards,

Ronald

My 2 cents...

What do you mean by J2EE? The term J2EE can encompass dozens of different technologies/concepts. For example, while J2EE includes both servlets and Entity EJB beans, you can certainly find servlet programmers who've never written an entity bean and visa versa.

I'd focus on which particular areas you want to study. Whenever I see J2EE on someone's resume I ask them to qualify it with details since the term itself is quite vague.
