Forgive my not keeping track of things, but has someone got a sentence or two about the new peristance model for EJB (I've seen EJB3 bantered about, but it's development/release schedule and perceived acceptance wasn't commented upon). More to the point, though, is how is that treated in the book?
The book deals with J2EE 1.4 issues. Specifically it was written against JBoss 4.0.2 and done before the EJB 3 stuff was released, so the book doesn't cover that. But see the JBoss site for some good information and tutorials on EJB 3 with JBoss.
