Hello ranchers,

I have the "Head First EJB Book" and I want to follow it in order to learn on EJB 2. But to follow the instructions I need the J2EE RI and maybe Java 1.4 or 1.3 (Which are quite old).

Where can I find that ? I didn't fount J2EE RI downloads on Sun's site...
What's the best replacement ?

Which EJB container do you suggest to follow the book ?

Thanks in Advance for your help

EDIT: OK, I found that Can someone guaranty that it is not outdated?

I agree. Here's the link:
