Java - EE 5

I am trying my hand at the beta version of Java EE 5. I've downloaded the complete bundle and installed it without any issues. I am anxious to begin develpoing apps with the EJB 3.0 technology, but I've been unable to do so thus far. I have had bad luck with Glassfish so far and the Netbeans 5.5 IDE still seems buggy to me. Don't take my word for it though...give it a shot for yourself. I fear that the issues I've seen thus far have something to do with the Postgresql back end whih I'm trying to use.

I will give the latest Netbeans 5.5 a shot with the beta SDK and report.

    Hi Josh.

    You probably should try something newer that the Beta as there have been many changes sinc then. Try b42 or b43 from
