Hi You can laugh as much as you want. The Head First EJB is a study material for SCBCD J2EE 1.3. I studied the Head First EJB for a little over two years and I came to testing site for exam just yesterday. To my surprise the test was not as I expected. It was SCBCD J2EE 5, which I did not pay attention to when I registered for the test. You can guess, I've failed the test. Any one know what is happenning to the SCBCD testing version J2EE 5, J2EE 1.3, J2EE 1.4 etc...? Thanks Quang
Quang, J2EE 1.3 isn't used much anymore in the industry and J2EE 1.4 is on the path out door. As you saw, only JEE 5 is offered now. So you will have to learn JEE 5. Unfortunately the Head First book isn't going to be upgraded so you'll need to study something else. On the bright side, many of the concepts are the same so you have a head start.
