I'm now at chapter 5 of Mastering EJB 2nd edition, so i'm still new in this. I have been wondering about the real world applications that make use of EJB. Can anybody give me some real examples about the fields EJB is used for ? Can we classify EJB as one of the web services like ebXML, SOAP, etc (i have no idea what these web services are) ? If you know the links for infos that could help me, please reply them here, okay ? Thanks alot ! Jhun
EJB's are most useful in transactional applications where many (thousands) of transactions are concluded at the same time. Banking is a good example.Think of many people using an ATM to withdraw,deposit or enquire on their balances at once.The Container or Application server manages the transactions and ensures integrity.
