The O'Reilly *Enterprise Java Beans* book is also excellent. Make sure you get the 2nd edition, which covers 1.1.

OK, sounds good. Go to the website, click on Resources, and you'll find a link to download a free copy of Ed Roman's electronic book Mastering Enterprise Java Beans. (I've read part of it; it's pretty good.)
Of course, this won't get you the software you need to try them out on. Who do you think has the best EJB software download (preferably free)? IBM's Websphere? BEA's Weblogic? Someone else?
Thanks

Whatever you do please do not waste your money on The O'Reilly *Enterprise Java Beans* book. I have never seen a technical book so full of errors. Just research,
- how many times it has been revised this year, and
- how many outstanding errors are listed at oreilly.com,
to get an idea of how poorly put together this book is.
A much better source of starter documentation is the *free* guide that comes with Sun's reference j2ee implementation.

I don't want to be quite as harsh, but I too was surprised at how many of the examples were either wrong, or took a ton of tweaking to get working.
On the positive side though, all that messing around and hair pulling probably helped me learn EJBs a lot better.

Enterprise JavaBeans- O'Reilly publication is probably still the best book on EJB.
I would rank Mastering Enterprise JavaBeans after O'Reilly.

OK so maybe I was a bit harsh in my orginal post, but hey now I can have two posts and double my chances of winning another copy of the OReilly EJB book ! But seriously, the algorithm I use when buying a book is to take the following steps,
1) learn the fundamentals from free docs, in this case use the J2EE Guide that comes with the Sun reference implemnattion.
2) Make notes on the bits you didn't understand or the things that you thought were missing.
3) In a book store briefly try and research two of the topics noted in 2) above.
4) Buy the book you feel best answers your two sample topics.
I hope this helps.
