I just noticed that the sixth edition of the book Enterprise JavaBeans, updated to the specification 3.1, from O’Reilly, by Andrew Lee Rubinger (JBoss) and Bill Burke (JBoss), is now available.
I am looking forward to reading it.
The book does not focus on any specific application server. As mentioned in the introduction :
“Because the focus of this book is on developing vendor independent EJB components and solutions, we have stayed away from proprietary extensions and vendor-dependent idioms wherever possible. You can use any EJBcompliant server with this book, but you should be familiar with your server’s specific installation, deployment, and runtime-management procedures to work with the examples.”
