Hi Siki (I hope this is your first name :-) ) and welcome to JavaRanch - it's in deed a great site, I personally believe it's the best out there when it comes to sharing Java knowledge and getting your questions answered.
I'm just in the same situation as you are. I started with Head First Java (the BEST book to begin learning Java) and then got along with "Sun Certified Programmer & Developer for Java 2 Study Guide (Exam 310-035 & 310-027)" from Kathy and Bert.
I also read "Head First EJB" and "J2EE Developer's Handbook" (Paul J. Perrone) and found these 4 books providing me with everything I need.
I am now facing certification... :-)
Keep my fingers crossed for you and let us now how you progress, please.
I'm writing this, because I tried to learn and really understand the concepts of Java for quite some time. I started as most of the folks here probably did, I downloaded some web tutorials, I visited a couple of web resources, then I decided to go for some good books. Although there are really great books out there and most of them merely worked as references, I never really had the feeling to understand all the concepts in-depth.
This has changes dramatically when I had finished a book called "Head First Java".
For the first time (since years) I now have the feeling to really understand all the key concepts and I managed to deep-dive into Java programming without the need to memorize all those API methods, etc.
I hope this is not off-topic, but if anybody wonders how to start learning Java I recommend the following:
1. Buy and read "Head First Java". It's a very uncommon book. It's not one of those "just another nutshell book about Java" type of book. Read it. It might take you 5-10 days.
2. Having finished reading "Head First Java", go for one of the usual references, maybe one from O'Reilly. Having read "Head First" you will find it exceptionally easy to run through standard Java books.
3. Start programming.
I hope this is not too off-topic, but I got really surprised by what I have been able to learn and understand for the first time even after heaving read so many Java references and guides. So I thought this might be of any help for other "newbies".
Regards

I fully support Lasse. I moved to MyEclipseIde(.com) having used Eclipse for a few months. It's worth the yearly subscription and provides you with exactly the functionality you described.
Why do you want the server side to initiate printing? Is there any specific reason that prevents you from doing it client side?

You are right.
They now named it "Sun Application Server" without the "One". And that is actually where part of my confusion came from. I love Java. I love the idea of open source. But Sun could definitely do a better job with respect to structuring their website and less changing names of all the pieces.

Found it. It's now called Sun Application Server.
Sun's website is a little bit diffuse but finally I found it.
Thanks to everybody who looked into this.
To clarify what I HAVE installed: There is a folder
c:\j2sdk1.4.2_02
Inside I find other dirs, a bin directory and a jre directory. But I cannot find the deploytool nor the RI server.
Please help.
I installed the full SDK (Windows version) but there is now deploytool executable nor the server. Any hint?
Maybe a stupid question:
"Head First EJB" is referring to the RI AppServer and the deploytool. Where on Sun's website can I download it? I searched but did not find any location.
Your help is appreciated.
You might want to take a look into

The subscription is more than worth the money and you needn't take care for possible plug-in crashes. In a professional environment, I prefer that option.
Knowing that the board tracks based on last visit date totally solves my issue. No need to change. You can regards this thread as closed.

Well, the issue is, that I visit JavaRanch quite regularly but I do not read each and every thread. Therefore the lit light bulbs will stay because there are always kind of unread threads in each sub forum.

Does anybody know how I can mark all threads of a forum read? I visit JavaRanch regularly and I want to know about "new" threads only. Therefore I'd like to set all threads to read.
Any idea on how to do it?
