Jonas EJB Server
Not necessarily a programming issue, but I've spent the last couple of days trying to get my head wrapped around Enterprise Java Beans. Jonas is an open source EJB server that implements most of the EJB 1.1 spec.

In tinkering around with Jonas, I've found that it's fought me every step of the way. I've finally got my programs up and running but it was a pain. If you use Jonas as a learning tool, you'll also need to check out InstantDB from the Enyhdra group.

For those who want to experiment with EJB, I recommend Jonas (even with its learning curve). The other commercial servers like IBM's Websphere and Bea's Weblogic are massive (>90mb) and have a kitchen sink mentality. Jonas requires some patience, but you do learn EJB along the way.
