EJB Cookbook is a collection of recipes for the common EJB developer, wondering how a certain task can be accomplished with EJBs.
The authors state early on that the focus is not on teaching the EJB technology and basics. Despite of what the authors just said in the preface, the book starts with exactly the kind of basics that encourage quick browsing.
The 2nd chapter is a U-turn and points the book to the right direction for most of the journey. The overall level of the recipes is still a bit too simple for my liking -- the toughest questions have been left out. On the plus side, I am happy with the fact that the authors have included chapters on using XDoclet for EJB development and on unit testing EJBs with Cactus. The body of the book is, simply put, a compact reference for accomplishing recurring development tasks.
Excluding the chapters on XDoclet and unit testing, the EJB Cookbook is not an exceptional book. It is a reference, albeit a useful one.
