starting J2EE

P: n/a
Hi,

I am teaching myself J2EE. I have couple of books but how can I get
practical experience?

I installed trial version of IBM-websphere but it seems too complex
for a beginner in J2EE. I have WindowsXP.

Suggestions are welcome.

Cheers,
prabhat

have a look at either tomcat (not the complete j2ee api - but some
interesting stuff) or jboss. Just unzip jboss to the dir of your choice, cd
to ./bin and type run (will start default server). Its much easier than most
of the commercial servers to get familiar with.

Thanks for the suggestion. What I meant was, how do I learn J2EE from
scratch? Is there an equivalent of "hallo world" program using j2ee
n-tier architecture? How can I write a small and simple program that
uses all three tiers and help me get a practical experience?

Do I have to have a server and database to start? I am trying to learn
on my PC running Windows XP which is just connected to the Internet.

Cheers,
