Don't let the title scare you away - this book is a great companion for professionals and amateurs alike. The book efficiently covers the what's, why's and how's of the EJB technology. Chapters are very well structured and quite comprehensive. It has all the latest in EJB technology including the EJB 2.0, an interesting coverage of "Local EJB" specifications and using EJBs as Web Services. Whether you are just beginning to learn EJBs( excellent chapters on Entity, Session and Message Driven beans ) or a real pro( checkout the topics on Design Strategies, EJB Performance and Scalability and COM based EJB clients), you will most certainly find something palatable. Pros - Most current, extremely comprehensive coverage, experienced authors, examples that leverage on real life scenarios, great appendices on some of the popular App servers. Cons - Big, fat and very minor inconsistencies. (Ajith Kallambella - Sheriff, September 2001) More info at Amazon.com More info at Amazon.co.uk More info at FatBrain.com
