Hi all, I just passed SCBCD EXAM with 87% And my big question is I want to do some real projects implementing EJB structure and involving a database . can somebody comment on this...websites...tutorials...ET-CETERA..servers are all welcome thanks Pradeep
Failure is not when you fall down; its only when you fail to get up again.
There are many EJB/JSP/Servlet projects at SourceForge one can join & start contributing to. Commit to a project, start small (eg., fix outstanding bugs, test some new feature, or help with documentation) and go from there. -Ade Barkah
Thanks Ade.. i did visit SF.net site. quite interesting. but i am relatively new to EJB and other J2EE technologies. can u please suggest some resource/sites where i can find some dummy projects which i can develop on my own, just for learning experience. Thanks, Aju
Depending on how comfortable you already are with J2EE... If you're just starting out perhaps reading through a book like K&B's "Head First EJB" is a good way to learn the concepts. If you're ready to play with some code then download an app server (such as the 1.3.1 RI and go through one Sun's J2EE Tutorials. Pick one of the J2EE 1.3 tutorials there to start (there are many others from Google.) Try developing an end-to-end example (JSP + servlet + session bean + entity beans --> database [and all the way back].) Beyond that you can go through the Java Pet Store 1.3 example application. The Pet Store isn't realistic, but it is well documented and uses various design patterns worth studying about. I keep mentioning 1.3 instead of 1.4 since the J2EE 1.4 tutorials out there seem overly complicated for some reason (showing off new features instead of the fundamentals.) If you're a structure-oriented person, then it's a good idea to study for the SCWCD & SCBCD exams, or at least use the exam objectives to as your own study guide. Lastly, don't get frustrated, it's a long journey (which never ends, really) but rewarding in many levels. I was already a very experienced C++ developer before embarking on J2EE, yet it took me quite awhile before everything finally "clicked" together. HTH, -Ade Barkah
