Hi All
I will sugest people who are currently studing EJB to read The Roman Book By Ed Roman. It is an Excelent Book as per my survay and knowledge.
Get The Electronic Format of the Book hear www.theserverside.com
Also the Mansoon Hafel's Book From O'reilly is Best for SCEA Exam Point of view.
Regards
Bidyut

I have also found Ed Roman book as very good. One should read Ed Roman and then O'reilly. But the irony with both the books is that they cover ejb 1.0 and not 1.1. And the examples in the books have to be modified to execute on Weblogic 5.1. And for a beginner this is very difficult.
Are there any books on Ejb 1.1 ?

Not only good resources , but also found very good discussion forum on EJB than any other site in www.theserverside.com .
There were so many patterns on EJB.

About Ed Roman's book:
Don't be fooled by the "thickness" of the book. The type is big and the margins are large! It is actually a very quick read.
Also, don't worry about the book covering EJB1.0. Mr. Roman does and excellent job talking about the CONCEPTS of EJB, which remained pretty much the same from 1.0 to 1.1. Also, 1.1 came out right before he published the book, so he does point out the differences where he can.
The book is an excellent read that explains EJBs very plainly. It's easy to understand and you should have a solid understanding of EJB when you are done.
But, I agree it is probably a good idea to start with this book, then move on. Java Server Programming, J2EE edition from Wrox also has excellent, up to date (including EJB 2.0) coverage of EJB. Actually, I treat that book as the bible of J2EE. Don't worry about it's size, either. Most chaptes can be read individually, and only a few depend on others (the advanced topics chapters).

Ed Roman book will soon be available as Low price edition in India. It would cost Rupees 450. This is for the interests of those who want to buy a low-priced edition with the same contents.

Apart from the downloadable copy of Ed roman's book , I would like to add one more point , that is It is not printable. YOu can just read that. If you can strain your eyes for that long , you can . Otherwise you get a copy for yourself.
It covers EJB1.0 , so you can expect the revised edition of that book very soon.
For the Question of thickness of book , i feel that the content of the book matters the most , not the no. of pages.
For people who want thinner books , definitely they can go for O'Reilly Book.
Another Book " Enterprise Javabeans " By Tom Valesky. It is also a very , very good book.
For the benefit of People from india, these two books are available at low price ( Special Low Price Edition ) In India.
I hope this is useful.

Shailesh.

Just got a copy of Enterprise Javabeans from O'reilly
Thoroughly enhanced for the EJB 1.1 specification, Enterprise JavaBeans, 2nd Edition provides a great introduction to the world of server-side Java components. With plenty of material on EJB architecture and design, this new edition can serve as an authoritative resource for mastering today's bean standards...

I think it is a good book for preparation. But I would prefer a smaller book. Besides not a single page of the book can be printed.
