Hi java ranchers,
I come across declarative programming term in ejb. I don't know what that mean in contrast to EJB.
Define declarative programming .... Discuss the shift in the programming paradigm from traditional development to a role-based, declarative development model?
Is it moving from tradition client server 2 ejb architecture as giving special role to bean developer,assembler,deployer...
Please throw some light on it?

Easy to change without complitation and code changes.
