Hi All,

Can anyone tell me when there is a schedule date for the launch of Head First Series of EJB3.0? I am eagerly waiting for that book from last 2 years since I have cleared my SCWCD5.

If there is no such updates on this then I would like to request Kathy that please try to give some time for this project as well and then please let us know the tentative date of the new book.

I haven't heard of anything yet. A piece of advice (which may sound rude) : If you can't study with books other than HF, you might not be at the right place. I mean that you won't have HF for everything when you have to do some real job. So don't wait for another two years, grab one of the recommended books we have in the ScbcdLinks (EJB3.0 is good), and start studying if you really want to be certified.

the "In Action" books tend to be pretty good (well the EJB3 and the Spring ones anyway)

This question has been posted frequently! I do recall one thread being continued till pages, 1 year back! Reza Rehman, author of EJB3.0 in action had mneitoned something of having talked to 'help' writing the hfejb3.0 book. But i don't think it go anywhere.

more on this - here

Yes, instead of waiting for the book better read all the stuff menitoned in the links. EJB3.0 is a good book. for JPA once can refer the book from Apress.
