To get some hands-on experience as part of my SCBD cert effort (successful last January), I read the Monson-Haefel book,which comes with a workbook and examples prepared for Jboss. The book, workbook and Jboss are available free on the net. Jboss comes with built-in db, so there's no need spend time installing an independent db.

I assume you're not posting this in relation to the J2EE: The Big Picture book promotion this week, but if you are, that book could give you a solid basis for the, well, big picture. Containers, architecture, EJBs and JSPs, container services, etc.
If you want to be in the drawing for the free book, go ahead and post another question about the book, or just repost this making it clear it's about the book. (I assume this is in acordance with the JavaRanch rules.)
