This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I would also appreciate having a HF EJB3 book, because of the way it is written. I read some pages in O'Reilly EJB3 and it doesn't seem to be as brain friendly as the HF series. I am missing all the pictures and the "watch out" boxes as they were in HFSJ...
I would buy this book too, but I think that there is necessity for tens of thousands of customers to make this book worth making for K&B. And EJB technology is not the most spread API, so the number of customers is certainly lower than for J2SE (for example). And whatsmore, as I remember correctly, making this book takes 8-12 months, so can need it now, but you cannot certainly have it. [ November 25, 2007: Message edited by: Pavel Kubal ]
Head First EJB 3.0 would be great. But at the same time I remember Bert commenting somewhere here at the ranch that "He and Kathy are a big fan of web services". May be at least they release some book on Head First J2EE Web services for the SCDJWS exam.

Coming to Web Service, it's next to EJB 3.0 on my list. Thats my priority.
Thanks Shankar, I am not gonna wait for HF EJB 3.0. It seems better not to addict to this kind of books.(lessions learnt)
