I found this book very useful and well written. But I doubt, it will help you preparing for the current SCEA part 1 exam, as it focusses (as the tilte says) on EJB 3.0, which is significantly different to EJB 2.x regarding enitity beans. Remember: the exam is a bit behind the bleeding edge
Greetings, Frank [ May 24, 2007: Message edited by: Frank Kuepper ]
Yes True, the exam focus on EJB 1.1, but as I had miss my exam last time, and want to have a second chance and review as well EJB section, don�t want to work on the same book that I have(ED-Roman), want to work on new one just to see an other approach... Frank as you had use it before, which version or edition you had work before (Richard Monson-Haefel )?. I checked on Amazon there is no old edition just the new one .. Or any other Good book beside ED-Roman for EJB?
What I meant about old Edition is if the same author had written before a book for EJB 1.x as the exam is focused on EJB 1.1 as you said the exam is a bit behind the bleeding edge . Because EJB 3.0 is not yet in the actual Exam.. Actually I had miss the Exam part 1 a Week ago and now want to retake it, also as I have never use or work with EJB (lucky you that you have work experience using EJB, this is more important than just reading a book ) .. so My first experience with EJB started when I start to prepare for the SCEA exam 1, I bought Mastering EJB by ED-Roman, indeed it�s a good book too, but for some one like me that had never know anything about EJB (the book is more theorical ) and it was hard to swallow all that theory. So during this week I did some research and someone strongly recommend the Enterprise JavaBeans 3.0 by Bill Burke and Richard Monson-Haefel book, and I�m wondering if there is Enterprise JavaBeans 1.x by Bill Burke and Richard Monson-Haefel ?
Or I�ll get a copy of HF EJB, this book is good too ... I have to retake the exam, and I have to make sure this time I really master the EJB .. What do you think Frank ?
Thanks again for your response and advise Mys Best Regards,
you know I'm holding now Head First EJB book, one of my colleague had to prepare for the SCBCD certification and had use this book, he said he just use this book to complete the SCBCD ... I borrow it from him
I'll spent all my weekend reading it !! Thank you and thank you so much Frank for all your reply and My best wishes for you next coming exam too
