I am trying to learn EJB with oracle 9i and using trial version of Parmati App Server . I can deploy some bean listed in examples of EJB Book by Richard . But I have observed that changing any relation for entity bean or doing someting of your own make life tough by changing at many places and repeating process again and again.
Which IDE is good for learning that make life little easier for experimentaion.

Hi,
Using Visual Age is very easy to write a ejb. But to understand the EJB, writing the code in Kawa or notepad is the best one.

TogetherJ from togethersoft.com is a very good tool for modeling and writing EJBs. You can model your EJB, write your business logic and deploy to the server of your choice. You can also look at the generated deployment descriptors

Thanks for info. After doing some search I found ParmatiStudio3.0 is easy to use and meant for EJB only.

Pramati Studio is an ideal IDE for J2EE developement... These guys also have a J2EE certified Application Server... a very usable product I would say... It also integrates well with other app servers like Oracle/Weblogic/SunRI.. which means that you can deploy applications on these app servers while develping apps on Pramati Studio...

Hi,
I�ve found Together Control Center and JBuilder the best IDE�s, but you should notice that people use to like more the ide�s they�re used to, so what you should do is pick one and study it.
About Visual Age I think you should avoid it as IBM is no longer supporting it, if you want an IBM tool you should try Websphere Studio or the open source Eclipse tool.
regards.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
