Eclipse and ejb

I am a newbie to EJB development. I have worked with eclipse and java/j2ee but have not had a need to develop ejbs until now. I have downloaded lomboz for building an ejb project (as prototype). I would like to find out if there are better tools out there. I am using Jboss for the test implementation. Is this a good app-server to start with?
There's resin, geronimo etc... etc. Also if this is a good approach.

Any insight/feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I think your approach is a good one. Lomboz is one of the most, if not the most, popular free J2EE plugin. And JBoss is a good, free app server.
