Hi,

Just would like to ask your opinion on what to make of make of EJB 3. Would it be widely adopted or be dominated by other lightweight tools like Spring / Hibernate.

Thanks

I think that EJB 3 will have a big market at a ratio of 90:1 compared to EJB 2.

EJB 3 creators tackled most, if not all of the negative traits of EJB 2. In addition, they incorporated good features found in other O/R mapping software like hibernate. One of the participants in the creation of EJB 3 (spec) is the creator of Hibernate.

A good question is if Hibernate will adjust, or have already adjusted by now, to comply to EJB 3 specs; I am still researching on this. If yes, then EJB 3 would even gain more market, as existing applications can use EJB 3, while having hibernate implementation at the back.

And how about the Spring Framework? How do you think would it measure up to EJB3?
