In the current job market I think EJB is looking hot.
I think this is the effect of the brand new EJB 3...
Am I correct Ranchers? Should I go forward with EJB 3?

Thanks and Regards,
Damodar...

Actually, Spring seems to be hotter. Most of the remotable features of EJB haven't panned out. The Internet has proven to be so hostile that about the only place where you won't bump off a firewall is if you're running a large distributed app completely within the local site and whatever VPN environment it may have. EJB Session beans have been supplanted by Web Services on the open Internet.

What I would concentrate on is JPA. While JPA is part of the EJB3 persistent object spec, it's also usable with Hibernate 3.0 and other ORM technologies as well. You don't need a container like EJB1 and EJB2 did.

Agree. I also happen to use the Spring Web Services and quite impressed with it.

But you can expose your session beans as web services. Doesn't that pose an advantage in EJB 3?

I accept with Damodar... He is 100% right...
EJB 3 had made the programmers life easier, so its catching up..
I see lot of openings(at least few now) for the guys who are good at EJB 3...

Its True... now a days the market is moving towards EJB and Webservices...
And I hope EJB will dominate in the near future with the safe hands of SUN...

Once programmers feel comfortable annotations, EJB3 will win.

What about Struts 2? I think it supports spring.(of course it is not in comparison with ejb/hibernate)
