This book is all you need to read if you want to know about EJB3, and it helpfully makes comparisons between EJB2 and EJB3 throughout the text.

If you read chapters 1 to 17 of this book, that's all you need to know to sit the Sun Certified Business Component Developer exam (JEE 5). I sat it this week and got 90%, using only this book and the Whizlabs mock exams as a reference.

The only down point of the book is that it must be read like a novel to really understand EJB3. It's not an easy lookup reference book, you can't just dip in and out of it. For example, different aspects of persistence contexts and transactions are featured in more than one chapter, which is why it is better that you read the book from start to finish. You won't need to read chapter 17 onwards unless you want to know about web services.

It might seem like a long haul but it is definitely worth spending the time reading this book.

This was the very first really helpfull book around the upcoming and trend nowdays - spec of EJB 3.0. Excellent examples, up to the point chapters. Must read for everyone that wishes to migrate from 2.1 to the new spec! Highly recommended even now that the EJB 3.1 spec is close.

I have a couple of EJB3.0 books but this one is pretty much the one that's permanently on my desk. It's a perfect reference for me now and was a great source of information while I was familiarizing myself with EJB3.0.

The workbooks are relatively informative as well even for readers that do not use JBoss (me being one of those people). The only minor issue I can think of is the limited Web Service coverage and the JPA sections are a little limited. That said the book's main focus is EJB3.0 and it covers extremely well.

I cannot recommend it enough.

Well this is a bit of a shame because this is a great book...except if you buy it in the Kindle format which doesn't seem to have any diagrams in it, so you have passages of text describing what's going on in a diagram you can't see!

Just to clarify this, the kindle version seems to have diagrams if viewed on a kindle, for some strange reason the kindle app on my pc fails to show them.

certainly this book has been written in hurry, programs do not execute in jboss. workbook claims it does but it doesn't! used absolutely the correct version of jboss. This book is not for beginners. After losing about a week time I had lost hope with this book and purchased jboos in action. Jboss in action is good book for beginners.

The book covers the ground, but in comparison with other O'Reilly texts it is hard going! And, because the method used is that of working through an example, it can be hard to find material if your model does not correspond tot he model being implemented in the example. A solid reference section would have been useful.

Not impressed with this book.
Information is scattered all over the pages. Not arranged in order.
No explanation for diagrams.
Introduction itself is bit strange.
