The book does not assume that you already know EJB. It starts with an introduction to J2EE, introduces EJB, and defines and explains each concept as the reader encounters it. I deliberately try to build a section on previously sections, a chapter on previous chapters, and this way tell a cohesive story with a logical flow, and not hop from topic to topic. I guess this comes from my teaching/training background in the classroom environment where you don't want to lose or confuse the audience right in front of your eyes. How successful I am in that effort, only the readers can tell :-).
Cheers.
Paul

Paul,

Will the book provide a step by step "sample" application for readers to bulid sample EJB systems according to the exam objective?

I am afraid this should not be a "right" post according the promotion regulations.

Baps:
Although the primary purpose of the book is to help you pass the exam, and it keeps the focus on the exam objectives, it's not just an exam cram book. It does not assume any prior experience with EJB. So, the topics are covered in a very cohesive way: a section builds on previous sections, and a chapter on previous chapters in a logical flow. There is no hopping from topic to topic. The concepts are defined and explained as the reader encounters them. So, my attempt has been to present a self contained body of knowledge presented with a logical flow. It starts with an introduction to J2EE, and an overview of EJB, and then goes through topics in a logical learning sequence, yet keeping the focus on the exam objectives. This way, it shows you the big picture of EJB and how the pieces covered by the exam fit together into the big picture.
Bottom line: it gives you the technical depth that one would expect from an SCBCD (of course no book is a substitute for real experience).
Hope it helps.
Cheers.
Paul
