I have access to WebLogic. But is it that simple to write an ejb and deploy using WebLogic? Or is there any server people generally use for practicing EJBs?

Hi,
JBoss is very easy to use. It supports
  • hot-deployment
  • automatic table creation of your CMPs
  • jmx-console where you can browse your jndi, queue definitions and database tables


  • - Besides all this, you can get along way without bothering about the server-specific xml file (thus enabling you to focus your studies on ejb-jar.xml).
    Good Luck!

    Why not use a full blown server like WebLogic/WebSphere. I am sure in real life you will encounter one of these two beasts so even if its a bit of one time pain its worth getting used to high end server.
    WebLogic is very easy to configure, supplies hot deployment facility and comes free of chagre with 1 year license.
    My 2 cents.
