Trouble Installing J2EE 1.3 SDK in Windows 7

I have installed j2ee 1.3 on windows 7 . I have set J2EE_HOME to c:\j2sdkee1.3.1 and also updated the CLASSPATH and PATH variables (JAVA_HOME is set too).

When I enter the command c:\>j2ee, I get the message : 'j2ee' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

Does anyone know what the problem could be?

I am trying to use the Reference Implementation (RI) server that comes with j2ee 1.3 to do the excercises in Head First EJBs.

Also, does anyone know if it's possible to practice EJB development with the free download versions of Eclipse (Helios) and Tomcat 6 ? I have used these in the past to practice developing Servlets and JSPs and would be OK developing EJBs with them if that's possible.

The first thing I'd do is to get rid of that book. Anything that teaches to use J2EE 1.3 is way, way, obsolete. We're up to JEE 6 now, and the way to create EJBs has changed beyond almost all recognition. The EJB RI server to use these days is called GlassFish.
I agree. Here's the link:
