Hi everybody!
I have a conceptional understanding of EJB (I know what an entity bean and a session bean is) and i should get up to speed with EJBs in about two weeks!
Cany anybody make some suggestions which book would be best in this situation?
Thanks, Patrick

Try Ed Roman's Mastering EJB - free PDF on his site:
On the ServerSide home page I did a search with "book pdf" and got a list of other cool books you can download. Great starting point.

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi

After you read Ed Roman's book, you shoud check this one also. It's Floyd Marinescu's "EJB Design Patterns" and it's a great reference once you know EJBs. I'm walking the path...

"Head First EJB" by Kathy Sierra etc is also a good book to get going on EJBs.
Its also reasonable to refer to the J2EE specifications once in a while to refresh your thinking and approach.
Some of the server side patterns in "J2EE design patterns" by Deepak Alur etc. is also a must read.
