Hello, I am preparing for EJB certification. I want to set up my machine to do some sample programming to get hands on experience. So what and all I need? I am going to download JBOSS app server, textpad to type the code in, I think I need some database to test entity bean as well right?

can someone help me out with the baby steps on the same?

I appreciate your help in advance.

Thanks,
Geetha

Ivan's notes has shown how to execute those examples at https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-0LAG21gaGDN3Jkblk3RnpKMmc/edit?pli=1
You need to download J2EE eclipse.

If you read EJB 3.1 Cookbook, you will need NetBean and GlassFish.

If you are going to use my notes, this document Setting up Eclipse with Glassfish server might be helpful as well.

My strategy is to read EJB 3.2 in Action for concepts.
I gave up on trying the code in EJB 3.2 in Action as the sample code in chapter 2 won't run for some unknown reasons.
Then, I started reading JSR-318, Interceptor 1.1 and Frits' notes. These documents cover a lot of concepts which are important for the exam.

My next step will be reading EJB 3.1 Cookbook and Ivan's notes about coding to enhance my understanding.
I am sure understanding the concepts and knowing what will be on the exam first are more important than diving into the code.
It is because the EJB 3.1 Cookbook / Ivan's notes may or may not cover all concepts on the exam. (??)

(When I took my web service exam, IZO-897, I dived into the code example first and end up struggling with the code that is not working and not even on the exam. That wasted me a lot of time. I learn a lesson now. I first focus on the exam related materials first. That is just my personal strategy.)
