Of just the four that you list, only JBoss has an EJB 3.0 implementation in production. The others are working on it, and I believe I saw in the authors other posts, that Oracle's App Server is in Beta. I am not sure how close the other two are.

But the other production app servers out there that support EJB 3.0 is Sun's GlassFish, JBoss, and one other that I can't remember the name.

JBoss' server is not certified EJB 3.0 yet. SUn's and the other is certified EJB 3.0

By "the other", do you mean to EasyBeans EJB Container of ObjectWeb JOnAS? If so, I think it's not certified EJB 3.0 yet, ASAIK. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Thanks for the info.
It looks like it is a little early to dig into EJB 3.0 right now since most containers don't support it yet.

Yes, it might have been, but I can't find the email that I had gotten that said what it was, I must have deleted that email.

It's alright to learn that since now, if your purpose is just to learn the EJB 3.0 itself, not the container-specific features that support EJB 3.0. Sun's Glassfish, which is the reference implementation of EJB 3.0 spec, is already available for us to play around with the new and cool features of EJB 3.0. It shouldn't be a problem to deploy your EJB code in other upcoming EJB 3-compliant containers later, as long as you don't use any container-specific features.

Just my 2 cents...

Maybe you are referring to the SAP NetWeaver Application Server.
It's a fully-Compliant Java EE 5 Application Server.

Well, the website says it is certified, so I guess that would then be the one.


SAP is breaking new ground in the development of enterprise-ready Java applications with the availability of the first platform product certified for Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 5 (Java EE 5).


"first"

Wouldn't that always be GlassFish that was first?

Exactly, I do agree with your statement. It is GlassFish that should always be the first that is certified for Java EE 5. But SAP could be the first in commercial(not open-sourced) products.

Thanks for the great article, Valentin!
