The DEFINITIVE Guid to EJB 3,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Enterprise JavaBeans 3.0 (5th Edition) (Paperback)
If you are buying a book on EJB 3, this should be it.
This book has no equal.
Interesting/Relevant examples, no "stretching" to prove/illustrate a point/concept, straight-forward, smothered in suggestions for constructive thought process in your designs, filled with reference to methodologies and their value, etc. etc. etc.
I cannot speak highly enough for this book.
From beginner to advanced EJB developer, you will find this as not only a valuable reference, but a wonderful insight into how to go about designing your Java-based enterprise applications.
The wide variety of topics covered do not take away from the primary focus of the book: Entities, Session Beans and MDBeans. These core principals are beautifully illustrated in this book in a wonderfully architected example.
The book touches briefly on the principals of Web Services, WARs, packaging, JBoss, etc. etc. etc. These brief touches show that while all of these aspects are involved in Java enterprise systems, that the core of all of them is the powerful ESbMDb structure. The author leaves it to specialized books to speak of these topics rather than trying to munge them into his in-depth coverage of their core principals.
