Kathy, I just downloaded the chapter last night and read a little. I must say that it is really cool. I remember going through the other Head First book at JavaOne, but didn't get a chance to really read any of it. But reading this one on the EJB Overview, I really really like it. I didn't realize that with all the pictures and little side paragraphs in boxes can really help in learning. I remember the Mail Messenger that had the letter to send. then the picture of J2SE, JDBC, and JMS, that got sent to all those Jacks. At least something like that, I only read that story once. I wish the entire book was already released, I need it to study all the objective. Thanks for posting that chapter. Mark
Mark, are you talking about the book "Head First Java". I thought that book covers just core java. If you talking about some other book by Kathy related to EJB, can you please send me the url from which I can download the sample chapter. Regards, Ritu
