I hope this question makes sense to all of you. From last week onwards I have been reading a lot of preliminary docs on EJB3.0 & enhnacements introduced in EJB with release3.
On the face of it seems , SUN really has managed to make EJB more approchable & intutive to the developer community. It has really sharpened the rough edges prevailing in EJB2 & also seems to be a good strategy to counter Dotnet.
My question is we had a lot of J2EE design patterns like (Value Objects, Service Locator etc) which were more a workaround to overcome the shortcomings of EJB2. Do these patterns now become redundant with the advent of EJB3.
