Hi All, I am fairly familiar with Java2, Servlets and JSP technologies. Howerver, I have no exposure to EJB's. What would be the best way to get started. Also, is there an app server/tutorials that I can install/use for learning EJB's ? Thanks

Yeah, the right thing to do is to start from the source -- that is, from Sun with the J2EE Reference Implementation (J2EE SDK). Also, don't forget to stop by the Java Pet Store demo and the J2EE Blueprints. From there, I may just add that you need to decide in what app server platform you want to specialize in, e.g., WebLogic, WebSphere, iPlanet AS, or Oracle9i AS, as EJB = J2EE app server. These are available in developer licenses and it'll be easy obtaining them. My personal advice is to add in JBoss (http://www.jboss.org) to the mix. JBoss is an open-source but industrial-strength J2EE app server.

Hi, Thanks for the links and info. I will start with the materials that are available online and the Java Pet Store implementation. Are there any books that you can suggest? Looking ahead, are there good examples like the Pet Store for related technologies like JMS, etc?
