Having access to an Application Server (WebLogic, Websphere, JBOSS ...)helps if you are trying to learn J2EE. Or else you can use the tiny one which comes with Sun's J2EE SDK. If you are only interested in learing Web-development, then Tomcat would suffice. A great place to start would be Sun's J2EE tutorial.
if you want to survey the J2EE maybe you can try to understander some web concenpt,for example the JSP or Servlet maybe this is about presentation,but I think It's a good way to start the j2ee..... try to retieve the SCWCD ....... Best Regards.....
