What's the best server to use when learning EJB? The trial version of WebShere, WebLogic, or is there something else?
I'll be running it on my home machine which is an Athelon 900mhz, running Win2K.
Thanks.

I'm not sure there is a "good" or a "not good" server to learn on.
The key aspects to choose are :
- Do you want to learn J2EE 1.2 or 1.3.. if 1.3, then WebSphere is not the one
- Do you want a free server ... if yes, jBoss sounds like a good candidate
- Wich IDE are you going to use... some associations could facilitate integration (WSAD/WebSphere... PowerJ/Sybase EAS...Borland/Borland..)

Hello,
You can use Jboss3.0 or JRun for testing ejb purposes. They are fairly stable and light enuff for testing.

Hi Mark,
Here is a Application Server Comparison Matrix for your reference.

Thanks Doug, that's a very informative list.
I think I'm going to start off with JBoss, and after I have a better handle on EJB, I'll play with some of the server trial versions.

That is a reasonable track. May you success and happy learning ejb.
