Hi Richard, Ranchers,
I currently work with EJB3.0 and has some knowledge on what's there in EJB2.0 and 3.1 . Comparing these versions, I see a lot has changed and has gone into 3.0 compared to 2.0(in terms of simplicity like annotations, changes in JPA spec etc. etc.). However, between 3.0 and 3.1 I feel there has been no big or visible additions unless we are looking for some specific features(singletons, asynchronous beans etc.).
So, I would like to know if anyone has any insights on to where EJB(or JEE as such) is headed now? What are the major features or additions(not sure if there are much left post EJB3.1 ) that can be anticipated?
