Hi All,

I want to buy a book to learn EJB Technology.

I have heard about Heads First EJB 2.0. But then when I read the reviews of the book online, they were not so good.

Can someone tell me what is a good book to start?

Thanks

Head first ejb with low ratings ? What an outrage ! I found it very useful and fun to learn when I read through it quite a while back.

I would suggest the head first book and this one

spend the money on word or keynote, (because open office butchers this powerpoint)

http://www.allapplabs.com/ejb/a_practical_introduction_to_ejb.htm

look online there are ALOT of tutorials for everything online. some good some ok. once you learn what you can then go for the most comprehensice book you can find. from one beginner to another i find this very useful. some of orielly's stuff is a bit over my head knowing nothing if i know little about it. after reading a couple of online tutorials or guides it makes things alot faster, however the quality of work is much better in most printed publications. and if your going for any certification exams books are almost essential.

I like "EJB 3 in Action" (Manning).

Note that the Head First book covers EJB 2.X. It isn't meant to cover the current EJB spec.

I definitely agree with Jeanne.

Manning EJB 3 in Action.

I would also like to recommend a supplementary book such as Mastering EJB 3 or Apress Pro EJB 3 Java Persistence.
