Hi Ranchers,
I am looking forward for a good book for learning EJB.
I know that there is EJB3 in Action, but it was published in 2007 and I am confused if it is not out of date.
What do You suggest?

P.S.
Maybe You know a good for Hibernate, as well?

EJB is by now up to 3.1, which is just a minor update to EJB 3 - so that book should be fine.

If you like the Manning "... in Action" books, then "Java Persistence with Hibernate" is available, although that covers an older version of Hibernate that implements JPA 1, not the current JPA 2.

And speaking of JPA, you may want to consider learning JPA instead of Hibernate. It's generally better to go with standard APIs than to use specific implementations; most people don't need what the Hibernate API offers over JPA 2, and you'd lose the ability to switch JPA implementations.

For some further advice on which book to choose, see http://stackoverflow.com/questions/96729/what-are-the-best-books-for-hibernate-jpa
