I'm almost done with the DD cheat sheet. I've uploaded a first draft and it is available at http://www.valoxo.ch/jr/DeploymentDescriptor.pdf
The other cheat sheets are listed on http://www.valoxo.ch/jr/cheatsheets.html
Happy learning...

Valentin,
what can I say. It's just beautiful! I love he way you handle the roles!
You're sure that Kathy and Bert don't want to include your charts in a appendendix in their book?

As Kathy said, the EJB spec is not meant to be a learning/teaching document.
The one problem I had with the spec is that information pertaining to a specific topic is often scattered all over the document. I hate that and that's why I have decided to start cross-referencing related parts and then sum them up in cheat sheets That's usually what authors do in their books
If you have special wishes about specific cheat sheets, feel free to express yourself I have some in mind but I might not think about every single topic...

Valentin,
Another lovely colour-coded example.
( Actually, I did come across one that suffered from a lack of colour. Did look gloomy by comparison.)
Could you please combine them all in a single post? I've lost track of how many there are .
These cheat sheets are really appreciated.
Thanks a lot.
regards

Thanks.
I did track the following Valentins cheat sheets.
It also lists all the other cheat sheets Valentin is currently working on.
Nice job, Valentin.
It's actually the exceptions that's the gloomy one. Guess it's not the right time to pretty that one up. Unless it's the way I feel about Exception Handling.

Thanks and regards

Hi all,
Want to know the exact difference between the elements <resource-ref> and <resource-env-ref> in the DD. And also how both are used?
Thanks,

Hi Bala,
In <resource-ref> you specify details for 'resource manager connection factory' i.e. you will put details for database connection factory or queue connection factory you want to refer inside bean for establishing connections to the resource managers.
In <resource-env-ref> you specify the name of 'administered objects' i.e. the jms queue name you want to refer inside bean for sending messages. I am sorry I don't have any more examples for this node.
Bean Provider specifies all 'resource manager connection factory' and 'resource administered' objects using these two nodes and Deployer links the real objects in the 'operational environment' with these these entries. So when the bean provider do a JNDI look up in the code using 'java:comp' ejb environment context (sub-context) he can access them.
Hope this helps.
