Hi Brian,

One piece that hung me up for a while was where to put this stuff on the
System i. The WAS stuff get's bundled in an EAR file, so you don't have
to worry about it, but the Java Web Start, and the batch applications
have to sit in the IFS.

EAR's, WAR's, other jars, WAS, and Java itself are on IFS; it's just
handled for you.


My next step is to learn JSF for web application development, but from
what I understand this will be easier now that I have a background in
Java/Swing (GUI) development, as the API's share a lot of common
principles.


While it's true about JSF and Swing principles, that aspect is not going
to be very obvious, especially if you decide "oh, I'll just jump to event
programming" for component interaction. AJAX makes it a little more
possible, but it's still a leap. I'd also suggest using Facelets (
https://facelets.dev.java.net/ ) because it eliminates the JSP baggage and
conflicting life cycle issues. It's also pretty clear that Facelets, or
something very similar, will be included in JSF 2.0.
