I can recommend our book Pro EJB 3: Java Persistence API for digging into the Java Persistence API part of EJB 3.0 and it does not discuss previous versions of the EJB specification. We included a review chapter on the component API, so if there is a bookstore in your area I would recommend that you take a look at it to see if there is enough for you on that part of the spec.

Hi Mike,
Does it need advanced EJB experience as a prerequisite for someone to read it? Or it also targets at EJB beginners as well?

There are actually a couple sample chapters available. One is the Getting Started chapter and the other is on Using Queries.

In terms of what the book offers above what other books offer I was the co-spec lead and co-author of the spec, so it offers the most insightful and complete coverage of EJB 3.0 JPA available, with lots of examples.

I wrote an FAQ on the book here that describes who the book is intended for, etc.

Hope this helps,

-Mike
