IMHO Mastering EJB by Ed Roman is the best.

I'd say

2. Enterprise Javabeans by Richard Monson-Haefel

but to be honest, I've not read any of the others. I usually find O'Reilly's books far superior to other publishers for Java books though,

cheers,

Dave.

Hi

I would recommend "Mastering Enterprise JavaBeans" by Ed Romans, Second Edition. I have read the first and second editions. Feel free to read the reviews on amazon.com

For the exam, I think "Head First EJB" is the best.

I wish you success in your career.

Ranganatha,
The EJB 3.0 specification should soon be finalized. I understand that it is radically different from the existing specification -- which is 2.1

None of the books you mentioned covers EJB 3.0. In my opinion, it would probably be preferrable if you wait for books that cover EJB 3.0 to come out.

You may find that learning EJB 2.1 was a waste of time, and it may make learning EJB 3.0 more difficult, since you may probably need to "unlearn" EJB 2.1.

As far as I know, there are already several EJB servers available that implement EJB 3.0. Perhaps you should start with them (and their associated documentation and code samples), rather than with a book?

I believe that Oracle and JBoss have EJB 3.0 compatible servers. Both are free for personal use.

Good Luck,
Avi.
