I want to learn EJB3. I have downloaded jboss-4.2.3.GA and created one stateless Hello EJB using ejb3 specs. I know ejb 2.0 on weblogic. But JBOSS is new to me. I know basics of JBOSS like how to deploy application , creating datasource etc.

My question is which book should I refer to learn EJB3 using JBOSS.

Thanks in advance.

i started to work with EJB3.0 and JBOSS as well and i use "Enterprise JavaBeans 3.0 (5th Edition)" and couple other books. I like this book but in my opinion there is no ONE book to find that explains all topics very good. Buy three or four and sell a couple after understanding the stuff. Good luck

If you are particular about JBOSS use this book
Enterprise JavaBeans, 3.0
By Bill Burke, Richard Monson-Haefel
Publisher: O'Reilly

This book is good enough with lots of practical code. They also demonstrate building ejb etc through ANT on jboss .

But before that reading EJB3 In Action (byDebu panda,Reza) sets the solid background for EJB3.0 .
