I have personally heard from some senior people and CIOs about their horror stories they had with earlier versions of EJB and the complexity and speed issues they had when developing using them.

And we as developers should get the message across to people higher in the management or among you peer developers (who do not keep up with technology trends) that EJB3 is better than earlier versions. Sun is doing a good effort in keeping us developers informed by conducting sessions about EJB3, persistence etc.

I strongly believe EJB3 has a lot of good things about it. And we should do our bit to spread the word. What do you guys have to say on this?

Certainly yes. Lot of projects may be using Hibernate as persistence framework, not sure how many will move to EJB 3.0 ?

A lot of the projects suffering from poor design and/or performance with EJB 2 (and older) should never have used EJB in the first place.
It was overkill, the decision made purely because either management determined it should be used because of all the buzzwords ("scalable", "distributed", etc.) or because programmers and architects wanted to try something new they didn't quite understand the implications of.

Same is true of most performance and design problems experienced with most technologies, EJB3 will be no exception and neither are ORM frameworks (which are also used in a lot of places where a simpler solution would have been much better, but someone decided that ORM frameworks are all the rage and THEREFORE we should use them).
