Hi all,

If you search you will see that Head First EJB has a published date of 11 May 2009...How is this possible when K&B havent released a new edition...If this is a problem,someone should please inform amazon so people don't get fooled into buying the wrong book....

That book is for EJB 2.0, not for EJB 3.0

Good point, I bought the book from Amazon and I got the 2.0 version. I am still reading it for backwards knowledge, but it was not what i was expecting. Does anyone know if there is a copy of the source code used in the book, available for download in internet? Thanks.

Hi guys,

I have the same dilemma, on I can find the new book but on the old one, I think is wrong because the ISBN codes are the same for the both books.
Even more the headfirst page (from O'Reilly) shows only the old book.


I agree. Here's the link:
