Spec question

The EJB 3.0 core spec (ejb-3_0-fr-spec-ejbcore.pdf) has chapters
  • Chapter 7 Client View of an EJB 2.1 Entity Bean
  • Chapter 8 EJB 2.1 Entity Bean Component Contract for Container-Managed Persistence
  • Chapter 9 EJB QL: EJB 2.1 Query Language for Container-Managed Persistence Query Methods
  • Chapter 10 EJB 2.1 Entity Bean Component Contract for Bean-Managed Persistence

  • If one is using the spec to get the finer details of EJB, is it correct to disregard these chapters in the SCBCD 5 preparation?

    Yes, but you should at least know how to use an EJB2.x bean from an EJB3.0 bean, and vice versa.

    You could consult the Head First EJB to get a feel of the EJB 2.1 version.
