As i mentioned in my previous post, i have recently begun preparing for SCBCD.
Before describing my problem, i must let it be known that I have absolutely no experience in developing EJB's. I have no idea even how to start a server for EJB's.
Right now I am in a dilemma whether to write all the code all by myself using notepad or should i use an IDE like netbeans to develop?
When i prepared for SCWCD and SCJP, i managed without any IDE. But it seems that for SCBCD, if I dont use an IDE, ill have to somehow learn 'ant' as well.
Suggest me something. Suggest me the right way, even if its not easy. Because I really want to pass the exam by learning all the intricacies. But i dont want to reinvent the wheel and waste precious time if its not required by the exam or in real life development.
So, should I use an IDE? If yes, which one? If no, then pleae let me know what else should i learn except 'ant' before proceeding with my study.
