hmm... I personally like JBoss (the fact that it's free and open source attracts me even more ). the learning curve is high, i'd say, not much documentation. But as you say, if you want to focus more on learning ejbs JBoss is the choice (no GUI at all. GUI's usually do the things for you,and you don't want that, since you really want to learn ejb's). I was in the same situation as you couple months ago, now I'm happy with JBoss.. just my $0.02... cheers
