Development Environment?

Dear All,

I'm just starting with SCBCD preparation and got EJB3 in Action.

What kind of development environment did you set-up?
Anyone Using Jboss Developer Studio 2.1 ? or Jboss Tools under Eclipse?

Even though the theory on the book is quite clear, I would need to build
up some knowledge on setting up the server and, let's say, publish a simple
Hello World application to see how it works...

Any links?
thanks in advance!
Dave

Hi,

I am using plain textpad, command prompt and jar utility as suggested by EJB3IA. The intention is to make us strong in the hidden details, that might become automated in an IDE.

If you are particular in using a development environment, you may try net beans, as it is easy integrate with the j2ee sdk, glassfish, java db and sun imq. I tried with eclipse and it was difficult.

all the best.

I was using Eclipse and Glassfish. I used this tutorial to set my environment.

Thanks for your suggestions!

I've finally set-up my environment... As a started I just wanted to set-up a quick EJB development and testing environment...
so I used the following:

- Redhad Jboss Developer Studio 2.1 (it includes all in one package, with hot-deploy pre-configured
i.e. Eclipse with jboss tools, Jboss Server)

- MySQL 5.1

It was the quickest way to not have to figure out how jboss, deployment and all works separately...
and be able to try the exercises right away.

Now, after few days, all the pieces fall in their place and I'm beginning to understand how all it works...

btw.... even if EJB 3 in action is worth reading...samples are not really that useful. since I bought both books,
The EJB 3 from O'reilly is really good: already at page 51 you test your first bean from a remote application...wow...

Thanks to all of you for the replies... which I will use to try to configure all parts separately...

Dave
