I am going to be getting into EJB's for IBM 483. Which book gives you the best for this test. "Mastering Enterprise JavaBeans" 2nd edition by Ed Roman or "Enterprise JavaBeans" by Richard Monson-Haefel.

Also IBM refers to 2nd edition of Enterprise Javabeans book. Is there something wrong with the 3rd edition???

Hi Gard,
The Ed Roman is available on www.theserverside.com as downloadable but not printable pdf (unless you find some tool to crack pdf password protection, which is illegal).
It seems that both are very good books. The "Ed Roman" seems to be a little bit easier, although it isnt referenced by IBM in the recommended readings.
The 3rd edition of Monson-Haenfel is heavily about ejb2.0 (not supported by Websphere 4.0).
But the differences of EJB1.1 are covered, too. Good thing is that Kyle Brown has published a free-downloadable workbook, which maps to 3rd edition (I think). http://hometown.aol.com/kgb1001001/index.html

The 2nd edition covers EJB1.1 and the outdated EJB1.0.
In my local computer book store they sold 2nd edition for 5$, so I bought both.
I am preparing for 488. Good look in your preparation.
Axel

Axel,
Thank you for info. I have the second edition of Enterprise Javabeans at home. I really appreciate knowing the reasoning behind IBM not referring to 3rd edition. I will read my 2nd edition since it will be more focused on the test criterion.
Good Luck on the 488.

What could go wrong in a swell place like "The Evil Eye"? Or with this tiny ad?
