Can I do EJB without doing JSP/Servlets

Hi,

Yesterday I cleared Java Programmer certification. Now I am
confused as what to do in J2EE. I am a big ZERO in that. So here are
my questions/doubts:

1. Can I do EJB without doing JSP/Servlets.
2. If no, can I do them simultaneously.
3. Good **readable** books for **Beginners** on J2EE. By readable I
mean should be easily digestible.
4. Also suggest good book on XML (Beginner level) - again digestible.

You can definitely do EJB without knowing much at all about Servlets and JSP, and the opposite is true as well--you can learn Servlets and JSP without knowing much about EJB.

You have to start *somewhere*, but I don't think it makes that much difference which side of the J2EE server you start with. As long as you have a very high level picture of what J2EE is and what it's for, you can start with either of the main Containers (EJB Container or Web Container).

I'm too biased to recommend a good book for learning it

cheers,
Kathy

Kathy, let me help you make a recommendation for doing SCBCD & SCWCD.

I cleared my SCWCD 1.4 on 17 Sept using the HF Servlets & JSP and I'm now preparing for the SCBCD using the HF EJB (along with the APIs and Specs).

SCJP 1.4 * SCWCD 1.4 * SCBCD 1.3 * SCJA 1.0 * TOGAF 8
