Item description for EJB 3 in Action by Debu Panda, Reza Rahman & Derek Lane...

Looks at the components of the EJB 3 API, covering such topics as session beans, message-driven beans, entities and the persistence framework, and EJB Web services.

Publishers Description
"EJB 3 in Action" tackles EJB 3 and the Java Persistence API head-on, providing practical code samples, real-life scenarios, best practices, design patterns, and performance tuning tips. This book builds on the contributions and strengths of seminal technologies like Spring, Hibernate, and TopLink.

EJB 3 is the most important innovation introduced in Java EE 5.0. EJB 3 simplifies enterprise development, abandoning the complex EJB 2.x model in favor of a lightweight POJO framework. The new API represents a fresh perspective on EJB without sacrificing the mission of enabling business application developers to create robust, scalable, standards-based solutions.

"EJB 3 in Action" is a fast-paced tutorial, geared toward helping you learn EJB 3 and the Java Persistence API quickly and easily. For newcomers to EJB, this book provides a solid foundation in EJB. For the developer moving to EJB 3 from EJB 2, this book addresses the changes both in the EJB API and in the way the developer should approach EJB and persistence.

Reviews - What do customers think about EJB 3 in Action?

Simply better than the others  Jun 10, 2008
My company's library basically gives me access to all books I want, so I used to have a big stack of big EJB3 books on my desk. But during 2 months of daily work with EJB3 I often found this book helpful where others weren't and almost never found it the other way 'round. Only exception: Enterprise JavaBeans 3.0 (5th Edition) That book sometimes just has a broader coverage, delivering details that "EJB3 in Action" doesn't. But still, "EJB3 in Action" remains the best-understandable EJB3 book with (almost) the best coverage of topics. I have now returned all other books than the 2 mentioned here to the library, and I always look in this book first.

While I agree with Rob on the language issue, what counts is the result, and that is usually the best with this book.
The best EJB 3 book out there...  Apr 8, 2008
I was not that enthusiastic about EJB at all during the EJB 2 era. Then I knew about the EJB 3 specifications and that made me read this book. I have to admit that after reading the book I became very much interested in EJB 3 mainly because of its removal of legacy EJB2 boilerplate mechanisms and the introduction of "Spring" like features. The book is very cleverly written and easy to read. The authors make every effort to make the readers completely engaged on the topic. Although I don't use EJB3 for my day to day work, this book clearly gave me new perspectives on how Java EE is driven going forward.
Great book on EJB3  Apr 5, 2008
This is my third book on EJB 3.0 and in my opinion the best one. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to learn Enterprise Java Beans and Java Persistence API.
Tremendous book on EJB 3.0  Apr 1, 2008
I have been working with Enterprise Javabeans for many years. This really is by far the best resource to date on Enterprise Javabeans. One of the many strengths of this book is to show how the Springframework blends into the EJB framework. I have had a lot of success in blending these frameworks. The authors really believe in the EJB framework unlike another major author of EJB books.
THE BOOK for EJB 3.0  Mar 28, 2008
This is THE BOOK for EJB 3.0. Covers everything about EJB 3.0.
Also outlines migration from EJB 2 and integration with ORM tools.
It's a highly organized and well written book.
