Prerequisites

Before you can start creating your first CMP entity bean, you're going to need an application server, or at least an EJB container to deploy your beans to. To summarize from the previous article, BEA's WebLogic is the most popular commercial application server, but pricey unless your company is large enough. JBoss is the most popular Open Source EJB container and can be combined with a servlet/JSP container (such as Jakarta's Tomcat or Jetty) to form a complete application server. If you have WebLogic, you're ready to go; otherwise, download the current version (2.0—final as of this writing) of JBoss.
