Hi Ranchers,

I have a small confusion on the EJB book

I dont have any experience with EJB so please suggest me the right book EJB in Action or O'rielly EJB book.

Thanks in Advance

Yes.. EJB3.0 In Action is a good book..

Pro EJB3 - Java Persistence API is good to cover JPA, Entity Manager Operation, JPQL, Persistence Unit and Persistence Context, Transaction management

You can use EJB 3 in action to learn session beans and MDBs

And don't forget to take a look at MZ notes

I also recommend Pro EJB3 - Java Persistence API, it's much better than EJB 3 in Action in JPA topics.
But for other topics, you can read EJB 3 in Action, and MZ's note.

SCJA 1.0, SCJP 1.4, SCWCD 1.4, SCBCD 1.3, SCJP 5.0, SCEA 5, SCBCD 5; OCUP - Fundamental, Intermediate and Advanced; IBM Certified Solution Designer - OOAD, vUML 2; SpringSource Certified Spring Professional

Have a good reading time!
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link:
