EJB3 needs promotion

I think we need to promote EJB3 more than EJB3 in Action, as the latter will benefit automatically.
EJB Technology has been replaced by Spring & Hibernate in most organizations.
We need to bring back the confidence of industry back to EJB Technology.

In this regard, I feel "EJB3 in Action" will play a vital role.
Hence I thank Debu Panda, Reza Rahman & Derek Lane for their new book.

Industry won't accept EJB3 unless their are quality professionals trained in EJB3 and I hope EJB3 in Action will assist in this regard.

Next SCBCD 1.5

I don't see anything wrong in people using Spring/Hibernate. Standards do matter to certain extent.

We are seeing increase in adoption of EJB 3 / JPA amongst customers. It will certainly increase with production release of application servers from major vendors implementing EJB 3 specifications. Note that new Hibernate and TopLink users are going JPA path instead of using proprietary API.
