Hi,

I am curious to know the significance of the title Pro EJB ? I am planning to appear the SUN's EJB exam . Will this book be helpful ?

Cheers,

Hi Biswa,

Apress (the publisher) has a series of books that starts with "Pro" that is intended for intermediate to advanced users. Given the newness of the API, Merrick and I decided to include some chapters to help beginners pick up the book and learn the API, so it is good for novices as well.

I am not sure what version of the specs is covered by the Sun exam you are looking at, but if it covers Javee EE 5 then this will definitely help you. If it only covers J2EE 1.4 then this book will not really help you.

-Mike

Just to answer the question regarding the exam version, the current SCBCD covers the J2EE 1.3 version (meaning EJB 2.0). Supposedly a JavaEE 5 version of the exam may be out this fall, but there's been no announcement from Sun.
