Hi. I'm wondering if someone could help me with a strategy for developing a web application that uses EJBs (assuming I'm not using a framework such a struts). From the tutorials I've been reading, it seems like a good strategy is to create custom jsp tags that lookup and access your EJBs, but then I've seen other tutorials that separate it even farther, such as a jsp that accesses a regular JavaBean, which accesses an EJB.

Can someone give me a little information on which of these (or an alternative) is a better strategy here? Thanks.

If you want to integrate your web application (JSF + Facelets) with EJB seamlessly, you should consider JBoss Seam. The only catch is that it requires Java EE 5.

SCJP 5.0, SCWCD 1.4, SCBCD 1.3, SCDJWS 1.4
