This is the best book I have ever read(except JP). it is near perfection. I wanted to learn everything about ejb instantly without any waffle, I wanted to be satisfied, I wanted to be challenged and entertained and this book does it all. It is a fantastic read.
the plus points:
no1: it is well written and to the point; it presents a complex subject in simple terms
no2: it is well organised
no3: it contains all the theory you need and more
no4: the best bit is it contains a full e commerce example and shows how to mix ejb, servlets and html
no5: all the code is complete not snippets like in other books so you have the complete picture
no6: it also covers ejb 1.1, xml, rmi, jndi, ejb ref guide, corba and transactions
no7: it contains servlet code (but does not explain the theory)
no8: if you know ejb already you can go straight to the e commerce example, because it is all in one place (except customer and product beans!)
no9: i found that i didn't have to contantly refer to other pages when i was reading the book (which i have to do with numerous other books)

the downsides:
-it does not contain JSP (i hate jsp anyway)
-the introduction is a bit long but some will find it useful (you can skip it and not lose the thread of the book)
- no UML diagrams so you have to look at the code in detail to work out how the objects interact (but that is the fun part!!!)
- i couldn't get the code to work- the process of running the main example is a little vague.
- "Understanding ejb security" p136 is a bit difficult to understand
- the puzzle game could have been replaced with a more e commerce example
- i would have liked to have seen an e commerce example with a credit card/payment module instead of a teller bean
can't wait for the 2nd edition.

I had been looking for a book on EJB for a while when I came across this book and was not disappointed with the buy. The author does a good job of explaining the reasons behind the usage of EJB in great detail. The code examples are quite good but be careful not to blink as it is quite involved and if you miss anything you may loose the plot. Event though this is a good book I would advise anyone wanting to buy a book on EJB to have a look at few other titles before putting their hands in their pocket.
