I have been doing web development for a while now. However, I have only been using servlets and jsp. I looked at ejb but they seemed to complicated to do what servlets and jsp already does. Would some kind soul enlighten me on why one would use ejb over servlet/jsp? Or the other variations of this question, servlet/jsp alone vs. ejb in combination with servlet/jsp. All I have been able to gather is that "for enterprise, use ejb" but with no explanation as to why... Also does this book cover such a thing?

EJBs will allow you to concentrate more on your business logic, rather than such things as persistence, security, transaction management, and bean pooling. All this is offered by the container. If your app is relatively simple, then you can usually do all this yourself and EJB is probably overkill. Brian
