Hi all,

I am new to EJB and would like to learn the technology fast for working on my new project.

Is it easy to learn? I have a strong java/servlets/jsp background.

Can anyone suggest a few good books which i can refer.

Thank You All

I like "EJB 3 in Action" - there is a review in our bunkhouse.

Me too. EJB 3 in Action is pretty easy to understand with it's clear explanations. And have a look at the Editor's home page.

Hi Deepthi,

Its very easy to learn EJB 3.0 if you know EJB2.x (for basic remoting concepts, middleware services etc.). I think if you are not familier with EJB2.x, you can start easily. There will not much dependecy.

Yes. i also agree that, "EJB3 In Action" is great. Inface, all the "In Action" series books are good. We are also using EJB3 in our application. You can follow these online resources for quick learning.

Try "Enterprise javaBeans 3.0" by OReilly Publications.
I found it the BEST.
