This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Also, I would like to thank everyone that was part of the EJB 3.0 specification, they did a fantastic job. I was really impressed on how they all worked so well together, putting aside some differences in "competing" technologies.
Hi Mike and Merrick, I am new to the EJB world. I have started working on Enterpriese Appplication for the last 6 months. I have a basic understanding of Ejb 2 having worked mostly implementing StateLess Session Beans and Web Services. My question is do I have to read some beginners book of EJB before starting with your book or with a basic knowledge I can start digging inside your book.
Thanks and Regards

No, you do not need any EJB experience. Object-relational experience would help a little when it comes to the advanced concepts, but is not required. We try to briefly introduce every concept, so we would be interested in your comments if you get to parts that you do not find easy to understand.
