From what I've read, EJB 3.0 is suppose to make object persistance much easier. My question is do you think more people will switch from Hibernate and other data persistance frameworks, back to the more traditional application servers with the release of EJB 3.0?
Also, can you give me a quick list of pros and cons for both Hibernate and EJB 3.0?

My experience with EJB 3.0 is somewhat limited, its just not something I could consider myself expert in.
That said, I think it comes down to "I need to get stuff done now" vs. "I need a way to get stuff done eventually".
Hibernate v3 is also converging a bit with EJB 3.0 as well. Gavin did work with the EJB 3.0 spec group, so a lot of the ideas EJB is going to be using come from the work Hibernate doing for the past few years.
