Tame Wild EJBs? (chapter 13)

Hello authors,

Could you elaborate a bit regarding the content of chapter 13, titled "Tame Wild EJBs" ?

Can I assume this may cover the caveats of having POJO based EJBs and not about migrating from EJB 2.0 beans to EJB 3.0 beans? (which I'm guessing is what the following chapter covers)

thanks,
Dario

Actually it is primarily for tuning entities and EJB components (sesssion beans and mDBs).

Here is the detailed TOC for Chapter 13:

Thanks Debu,

I was hoping (judging by the title) that it was about anti-patterns and such but advanced tuning and performance tuning techniques are always good topics. I'm especially looking forward to 13.4: Clustering EJB Applications. Would this include more than general clustering design topics with specific example code and configuration for specific EJB container(s)?

thanks again,
Dario

Design patterns and anti-patterns are described in Chapter 12
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
