I'm new to J2EE and will be turning my attention to EJB's in a little bit. Would this book be a good intro for someone well versed in Java, but not J2EE?

I am of course prejudiced, but think this would be a good reference book for a beginner. It provides examples of common problems seen in J2EE projects in the real world. We took feedback from developers in their work situations to come up with the recipes.

What does "cook book" actually mean?

A cookbook is a collection of recipes. A recipe is a step by step set of directions for doing something. In this case, our book contains recipes for dealing EJB tasks/problems.

Am I right in saying it as a EJB best practices book?.

How do you think will be the future in EJB technology?

Both are different:
Best practices in baking a cake is
preheat the oven
use fresh eggs
butter room temp
dust the pan with flour etc etc
But recipie for baking a cake is
set by set instruction how to make a cake {the exact amount of ingredients u need and the instructions}
So i think title of the book is very good

while its not a best practices by definition, we certainly tried to advocate what we thought was the best solution for a given problem. In addition, we do recommend tools for some tasks, like XDoclet for instance.

Is it safe to say that cookbook == pattern book?

No its not a pattern book, although there are a few in the book. Basically, the book tries to answer commonly asked questions (and some not so common) of EJB development. "I want to XYZ, but how?"

Does that make it more along the lines of a solution oriented approach then if not a pattern?
