I am starting on SCBCD 5.0. Would like to know
1. Which one of EJB 3 in Action or Enterprise JavaBeans 3.0 (5th Edition) (O'Reilly Media) or Pro EJB 3: Java Persistence API (Pro) , is the best one to start with... if I have to read more than one please let me know which topics are covered well in which book.

2. which server? glassfish/Jboss... what you are all using for the preparation.Do you recomend a book for that?which one?

Here are the steps which i feel is good

1)Read Debu panda (EJB 3.0 in Action) ,gives overall good view of EJB3
2)Read OREILLY book along with JBOSS (for practical purpose ) as examples
are for JBOSS
3)Go through EJB3.0 core specifications,
4)Finally Mikalai notes and mock tests
