So with the recent talkes about it, has anyone heard when it is actually anticipated to be available for use? Late 2005? Sometime in 2006?

The technology sounds good (sort of a combination of Spring and Hybernate in some ways) but it really doesn't do me any good now if it will take years to come out.

I would estimate (based on previous specs) that the new J2EE spec will be at least another 18 months out. Tack on 6 months for Application Servers to really start supporting + time for corporate acceptance and we probably won't be using it on real projects for another 2 to 3 years.

2.11 Please describe the anticipated schedule for the development of this specification.
The following dates are preliminary:

* Expert Group Formation: July 2003BR> * Community Review: February 2004
* Public Review: June 2004
* Final Release: This will occur at the time of the J2EE 1.5 Final Release.

according http://www.jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=220 's plan ,next
month we can review its spcifacation.and the application server providers
probably begin its support after July 2003.
i think it will be beta-release late 2004.
it is not that late.

Linda deMichiel has reportedly said that the spec will be released in one to two years. And as EJB 3.0 is tied to J2EE 1.5, it won't be released until the second half of 2005 at the earliest.

As for corporates ... I work for one and we are usually cautious/slow in using new products. I mean, we have only just started using WebLogic 8.1, and much of our EJB code is 1.1. I don't see corporates like ourselves going for EJB 3.0 for at least three years.
