Please refer HF-EJB book objective #2 at pg. 60 (First chapter)

It mentions that EJB 2.0 does not guarantees the dirty detection mechanisms. But this seems to be contradicting the specs (Pg. 26, first bullet on top of the page).

Please advice.

Also, Do I really need to know what's "new" in EJB 2.0 on top of EJB 1.1/1.0? Somehow I dont like the first chapter mock question #3.

Thanks!!

The section in question is

To support more efficient vendor implementations leveraging lazy loading and dirty
detection mechanisms; to reduce memory footprints; to avoid data aliasing problems;
etc.



Support isn't the same as guarantee. The specification was changed to create some opportunities for the vendors to implement these features if they are so inclined - the specification does not mandate the implementation of these features.

That question is in line with the Testing Objectives:


EJB Overview:
Identify the use, benefits, and characteristics of Enterprise JavaBeans technology, for version 2.0 of the EJB specification

Thank you very much Peer! Your posts are really quite helpful.
 
Why does your bag say "bombs"? The reason I ask is that my bag says "tiny ads" and it has stuff like this:
