    Check out the JBoss workbook

    A REVIEW OF THE FOURTH EDITION] Each edition of this book seems to grow visibly thicker. Perhaps indicative of the still increasing functionality being put into EJBs. The book covers what is currently the latest version, EJB 2.1. Plus also EJB 2.0. Comprehensive. Detailed explanations of Container Managed Persistence and Bean Managed Persistence. Plus how to use Message-Driven Beans and JMS to help put together a loosely coupled distributed system. MDBs and JMS did not exist in the original EJBs. But a clear sense of the need for such emerged soon after, and MDB and JMS were the results. With the flurry of interest on Web Services, we see how EJB 2.1 is compatible with these proposed standards. In future editions, this section may well be heavily expanded. Right now, Web Services are still nascent and more experience is needed with fleshing out optimal standards. Kudos to the authors for including a lengthy section showing how to use JBoss. It is a free application server that supports most EJB 2.1 features. Its zero cost and advanced functionality will appeal to many programmers on a tight budget. This section walks you through combining JBoss with EJBs.
