Annotation packaging

I'm using "Enterprise JavaBeans 3.0" (O'reilly). It's a good study boook, but I think there are some mistakes on annotation's package name.

We can found :
  • javax.annotation.PostConstruct and javax.ejb.PostConstruct
  • javax.annotation.EJB and javax.ejb.EJB

  • Owing to me, only the following annotations are correct :
  • javax.annotation.PostConstruct
  • javax.ejb.EJB

  • Is it right?

    Google says you are right.

    It also mentions some versions of JBoss use the non-standard packages (but it is reported as JBoss bug).

    "Enterprise JavaBeans 3.0" was written by the guy working on JBoss and all the code examples are given using JBoss container, so this is probably the reason you could find non-standard packages there.

    It is just a misprint.

    Take a look at the book's errata: (it is under unconfirmed).
