Hi Kathy and Bert!
Way to go on getting this book done. I was wondering if the examples used in the book would be specific to any particular server, like Sun's reference implementation? Since SCBCD is platform neutral it may not be that important but different servers do handle the J2EE platform in their own way and I am trying not to let it get in the way of learning the core concepts. This forum has helped a lot though. Thanks guys you rock!

I dont think think it will be specific to any servers, it will be independent of them.

I dont think they r specific to any server. I could see one batch of example questions as a beta tester. I could not find anything specific to a certain server.
But i must say that it was a great collection of questions. Kathy and bert have taken tremendous efforts for this. Allmost all the examples were good and correct. i could hardly find any printing or spell mistake in them. i was really amazed to see that.
Great work Kathy and bert!

The examples are different from mock questions.

We used the reference implementation for the book, it's free! A complete coding sample will be available as a free download from the wickedlysmart web site, pretty soon, (I'm too tired to commit to a date ).

I guess you are right, mock questions are supposed to be different from full-fledged examples, as the former is more about testing your knowledge of the specs and Ejb's, and should maybe be a logical step ahead for someone who has built a couple of beans or atleast had a go at some examples. I have found it extremely useful in cases like Monson-Haefel's (O'Reilly) book, which provides workbooks and sample codes to run through the most popular servers. It has made my foray into ejb's a lot easier and helps reinforce a lot of the concepts for the SCBCD. I am sure the book's gonna live up to our expectations and more, if the sample chapter is anything to go by.

A complete coding sample will be icing on the cake! Can't wait to get wickedly smart
I am simultaneously trying to work on the reference implementation and Jboss, and while the reference implementation is slow, its packed with lots of features which I haven't had a chance to utilize fully but am looking forward to doing.
