Addressing the storming controversy of EJB head-on, this guide discusses framework problems and common traps that can snare unwary developers. Advice is provided for choosing persistence strategies beyond EJB entity beans and a list of several entity bean antipatterns. Also offered are session bean and messaging antipatterns and a compelling discussion about how and when to use problematic stateful session beans. Solutions to difficult problems such as effective builds and performance tuning are furnished. Designed for EJB developers, architects, programmers, and project managers, this authoritative reference attacks basic Java programming problems to establish antipatterns as a serious field for Java developers in a well-known context.

Reviews - What do customers think about Bitter EJB?
Must read when considering/implementing EJBs Nov 10, 2006
This is a must read for everyone who either considers or is implementing EJB-based software. It is not a tutorial, it is the essence of experience, what to do and what not to do (or at least what to watch out for). In a team setting I would make this a mandatory reading.
Saved me much time Oct 15, 2004
If you are already experienced EJB developer then you will appreciate the good wisdom and advice in this book. I found it is not a problem solving kind of book but a problem avoiding one. Read before you start your next project and like me you will save many hours of frustration.
I give 4 stars because some chapters are not as useful and overall the book could have better organization. But these are small points. Definitely you should read this book!
Get your Enterprise Architect to read this NOW! Sep 30, 2004
As a consultant that's worked for a few big companies that are doing EJB Architecture, I'd like the Architect read this book. Then maybe they would put down the "golden hammer" (EntityBean) and pickup a useful tool. There is too much bangging around with those expensive hammers.
Good book - and I could relate to the adventure stories that open many chapters - I found them interesting and pointed!
Worth your money Apr 8, 2004
I was disappointed by Tate's "Bitter Java". But "Bitter EJB" is totally different story. I would strongly suggest everyone read it also get "Expert One-on-One J2EE Design and Development". These too books compensate each other very well. Both of them obviously favor JDO over Entity Bean. Is JDO the future? still unsure:-)
Not for the beginner Dec 14, 2003
This is definitely a book for the advanced Java programmer looking to refine his understanding of the pitfalls of EJB, and more generally J2EE, development. I was tough on Bitter Java because of it's technical editing. This book is decidedly better in that department but I can't give it all five stars because the difference in tone between the chapters and between the authors is noticeable and somewhat distracting. In addition the anecdotes about white water remain and I think they are unnecessary. That being said, if you are a J2EE programmer, this is a required book.
