EJB, a zoombie technology ?

Although EJB3 has been released for more than 6 months (I think), it seems to me that no one is talking about it (well, except for Sun and Oracle, even IBM is not talking about it).
Personaly, I was thinking that EJB will take off as version 3 released , but this did not happen.
So, do you think that EJB has a chance to live again, or it is a zoombie now ?

JBoss has been talking about it too.

I have seen some people already using EJB 3.0 It is fantastic, I love it. You will probably find it mostly in new development, so all those shops that have already been working on their project for a while and already have their apps in production, they will take a while to migrate. But you would be a fool to start new development with EJB 2.x and not try EJB 3.0 first.

BEA also has released a beta version with EJB3.0 support. I believe in standard tecnologies and that EJB 3.0 will gains it�s space. IBM is traditionally late implementing specs(usually a 1 year gap at least).

I agree. Here's the link:
