I would pick up Glassfish...but

JBoss is another GOOD option


Weblogic & Websphere are toooooo heavy, in fact Websphere is heavier than Weblogic.

Hi, I am preparing for SCBCD myself, and if you follow the book EJB in action, I believe that the examples in the book are using the Glassfish as the EJB container. As people suggested, JBoss is another good option. However, it requires you to modify the source code a little in order to make it work with regards to the JBoss AS. IMO, I prefer JBoss to Glassfish and the JBoss is simpler.

Good luck
