Hi

I am planning to buy a book on JPA.

i found that there are two books for JPA

a. Pro EJB 3: Java persistence API By Mike Keith, Merrick Schincariol , Apress

b. Pro JPA 2: Mastering the Java Persistence API By Mike Keith, Merrick Schincariol , Apress

I am a bit confused. Are these two different books OR "Pro JPA 2" book is successor of "Pro EJB.3 Java Persistence API"?

Which is better book to buy ?

Thanks
Abhay

"Pro EJB 3: Java persistence API" is a very interesting book on JPA 1.0. It goes well beyond the exam scope, but it's very well worth reading. "Pro JPA 2: Mastering the Java Persistence API" is an updated version, for JPA 2.0. I have not read it yet, but I guess (only a guess) that it contains most of the first book content, plus the JPA 2.0 specific stuff. For the exam, I don't think it would be harmful to read the JPA2.0, but if you want to stick to SCBCD stuff, then you'd better get the first one.
