Hi All,

Can you suggest which book is better for EJB from SCEA 5 exam perspective:

1. Mastering Enterprise Java Beans 3.0
OR
2. EJB3 In Action

Which one covers JPA well?

Regards

Amit

Mastering EJB 3.0 covers JPA pretty well. I also like EJB 3 Developers guide.

I did not read "EJB3.0 in Action" but I want to make a comment about Mastering EJB3.0. The book is awsome in my opinion

The best thing I like about the book is that is very readable, the language is pretty simple to read and understand and won't leave you confused

lavani is right, EJB 3 5th Ed by Oreilly is the most recommended book for the said topic. Not surprisingly it is also the most widely used study guide (so far) for SCBCD 5.

EJB 3 in Action on the other has been suggested to be well fit for those who want an easy to read guide on the topic. (some say the tone is similar to head first)

But if you want a free alternative, Mastering EJB should be alright.

I read some chapters of EJB in action a few months ago, and it really reads well. Though you would rather read this book in bed sometimes, as it tells stories, and explains things as they are science! But a really good book. A pity I haven't found time to read it through.

IMO, EBJ in Action is really a good read. Explains basic concepts, JPA and transactions very well. The tone of this book is really simple and easy to read.
Thanks

Hi,

I found some of the things, e.g. converting POJO to bean without implementing the interface, is not mentioned in the book.

Can someone point to accurate and concise resources?

Thanks,
