But you can learn while doing, JEE is not one big thing, it is a collection of little things which can be used and learned separately. So you could focus on the RESTful side of it first for example.
I want to use Java EE for the server part, but I haven't idea how to write the agent or which technology I've to use to realize the agent and how create the communication server <-> agent.
Thanks a lot for your help.What help? You didn't even ask a question, you just made a statement that you need to do stuff. If you want help you'll have to make a start yourself first, which will be orienting yourself on what is available. If you are stuck choosing between different technologies, THEN it is time to ask for help.

Thanks, I'm reading Java EE books and I wrote some web applications. My question regards the agent part. Have I to write this part in Java SE, in Java EE or exists libraries to create an agent? How can I create the communication between the server (Java EE) and the agent? Using messages? This is the nebulous part for me.
