Hi,
I do not know if this is the correct forum to ask but here is the scenario.
I have been working with projects related to Oracle Database
development for a no of years. My work revolves around
PL-SQL programming and all related Oracle Database
development activities .

I became interested in J2EE and the Oracle support for J2EE
technologies.

My question is : What is the best approach I should follow so that
I become and expert in Oracle J2EE technologies ?

I have also good knowledge of VB, C and recently got J2EE 1.4
programmer certification in JAVA ( No Commercial Programming
experience in Java ).

Regards,
Arun

    Define: "expert in Oracle J2EE technologies"

    What do you want to know?

    Start with JDBC.

    Thanks for the reply. Probably I need to rephrase my question.

    How Can I be an expert in J2EE technologies and How can I use my
    past experience in Oracle to achieve that ?

    Thanks,
    Arun

    Possibly we need to rephrase the answer.

    Try starting with JDBC.

    I repeat:

    I don't think your Oracle experience will help you much beyond JDBC.

    It might help in some places.
    Anyone capable of administering an Oracle server properly should be able to get a J2EE server up and running in no time, he's beyond frustration ;)

    But as to JEE development, that's indeed another story.
    The field is IMO to broad for a single person to be knowledgable in more than part of it, so before one sets out working in it one should have an idea of what one wants to do with it.

    EJB themselves are a large enough field that people can spend an entire career just on them (though I'd not recommend it), and have led many to believe that EJB are all there is to J2EE (to the point where when reading "J2EE" in a job description you can almost automatically transpose "EJB").

    For someone who's mostly focussed on database backends, EJB does lend the best way to branch out as they're the part of the system that is (should be) most closely related to the database so there are many places where that database knowhow might come in handy.
