Hi everybody,

So far I have been working on core java and some JDBC/Servlet/JSP stuffs.
I am keen to broaden my knowledge on Enterprise & J2EE sides.

I searched in all forums and gathered the following.

1) EJB 3.0 is the latest on EJB. Best book to start with is EJB 3 in Action
2) Spring/Hibernate are excellent frameworks and good to learn and get involved.

My questions are,

1) How JPA different from EJB/Spring/Hibernate? How do they fit together in bigger picture?
2) If I need to learn JPA, what book/besk links do you suggest for a beginner, but keen to learn and practice to an expert level?
3) For frameworks like Spring/Hibernate, which books do you suggest, again for a beginner, but keen to learn and practice to an expert level?

All answers are much appreciated.
This is my first post in Java Ranch as I have joined a couple of days ago

So if I have mistakenly posted or done anything wrong then please notify.

Thanks

Hi..


The latest version of EJB is EJB3.1 which a feature of JEE6 and more "lightweight" than EJB3.0

yap, i suggest you to read EJB3 in Action (if you wanna learn about EJB3.0)...
for JPA, i suggest you for read Java Persistence with Hibernate..
and the latest book for begin to learn about Spring is Pro Spring 2.5, or maybe you could use Spring in Action..

Hope this help..
