This week's giveaway is in the EJB and other Java EE Technologies forum. We're giving away four copies of EJB 3 in Action and have Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Ryan Cuprak, and Michael Remijan on-line! See this thread for details.
This tutorial recommends installation of JBoss AS 4.0.4 and the EJB 3.0 profile (installed using the JBoss AS installer); you also need ANT and Tomcat installed.
I am running Ubuntu and have Tomcat installed. ( Versions coming; I do not have access to the installation at the moment.)
This tutorial is from the SEAM home on JBoss, but it's using a rather old (2006 ) version of JBoss; is there a better tutorial?
My biggest problem as a developer is getting things like this configured so before I start on this, can you give me some recommendations of things to be sure to do or to avoid doing? I'd like to develop a good working style so that I don't need to ask for help to execute a tutorial because I can't get the required tools installed and talking to each other!
My goal is to work through the tutorial for SEAM. First I need to accomplish the steps of installing JBoss, the EJB 3.0 profile, and ANT. I probably need to update my Tomcat although I believe it is Tomcat 6.
