This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I'm now working with the book EJB3 in action and trying the examples. What I miss in the examples are the XML-deployment descriptors. I know you can work with annotations but I would to learn both. Is in the book EnterPrise JavaBeans 3.0. the XML-descriptors better described?
I don't know about "EnterPrise JavaBeans 3.0" but the book "Mastering EJB 3.0 (4th Edition)" has most examples in two versions: one with annotations and one with a deployment descriptor. It was my main source in learning deployment descriptor elements during exam preparation. Moreover it can be downloaded for free. You can find it under SCBCD links.

Thanks for the "free" tip. I will give Mastering EJB 3.0 a try.
