Primarily written for developers who know basic Java and want to pass the Sun Certified Business Component Developer exam CX-310-090, this study kit shows how to use EJB in developing enterprise applications. With the popularity of J2EE in the enterprise, SCBCD certification is an important credential for an EJB developer to earn. Focused on the exam objectives, the content goes beyond simply "exam-cram." More than 130 review questions with answers distributed over all chapters and an Exam's Eye View section at the end of each chapter that emphasizes the important points in the chapter from the exam's perspective are provided.

This book is very friendly. I liked the layout of the book in general and the writing style of the author in particular. Only relevant pieces of code are presented to focus explanation of topic in question. A complete running application may be downloaded from the author's website. The multiple choice questions at the end of every chapter and ALERTs in every chapter made remembering main points easier. Deployment descriptor elements are clarified in considerable detail and they are explained well. Thanks Mr.Sanghera! I recommend this book highly without any reservations whatsoever. It starts each chapter by raising three issues, builds the chapter around those issues, and concludes those three issues at the end of the chapter. The new terms and concepts are defined right where they appear for the first time. Things build upon each other: section by section and chapter by chapter there is a logical flow. It makes the book very cohesive and there is no annoying hopping from topic to topic that is frequently found in the certification books. This quality makes this book a good choice for both the beginners and the experienced, and for the SCBCD exam takers and also for those who just want to learn the EJB basics. The other things I especially like about this book are: * The answers to review questions are explained in detail. * The Exam's Eye View section at the end of each chapter that quickly re-hashes * The Exam Quick Prep Appendix. * This is the only SCBCD book that offers the exam simulator. There is the lack of attention to the code examples. There are numerous mistakes, mostly due to incorrect upper-case characters at the start of package names. Java is case-sensitive, so it's important to turn-off the word-processor's auto-capitalization feature when writing a Java book. Other minor mistakes include incorrect syntax in several places. Above all, I like the authors who support their work after they think they are done with it. There is an online support for this book at the publisher's site and so, I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to pass the SCBCD exam, or just want to learn EJB basicsWas this review helpful?
