I have recently started using J2EE and the tools of choice within my workplace is websphere enterprise developer. I have been tasked with looking at the EJB container and the different types of ejb's that are available, the problem I am having is that having just come off a course using the reference implementation I am having difficulty using websphere, I would like to know if anyone could point me in the right direction. Websphere is obviously a very powerful development environment but it is not intuitive??? I have tried using the IBM redbooks but find that although they show step by step how to create a session bean or a entity bean and how to use EJB to RDB mapping, I cannot see the relationship to what I worked through on the course. I apologise if this is not the correct forum but any assistance would be appreciated as a newbie.
