Dear friends,

I am planning to buy book for SCBCD exam and I am new to EJBs. I have passed SCWCD on 29th July, 09 itself. Earlier I studied for SCJP 6.0 by Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates and for SCWCD 5 by Head First Servlet & JSPs (Kathy, Bryan & Bert).

I was planning to buy Head First EJB by the same authors. But I have seen everybody talking about O'Reillys EJB 3.0 (By Richard Monson-Haefel, Bill Burke) and EJB in Action (Manning Pubs). Is HF EJB not a good book for the exam?? They are extremely good writers isnt it?

Please help guys. And if HF EJB is not suitable for the exam, which one I should buy for the exam from the two?

Also tell which server should I use for the exam. I used apache tomcat 5.5 for SCWCD and I have also Glassfish 8 installed in my system.

Your quick response will help me a lot friends.

Thanks & Regards to ALL,
Vishal.

Hi Vishal,
I hope you are talking about SCBCD5.0 exam only. If this is the case them I am sure Head First Book is not enough since it is based on Ejb2.0 where as this certificaiton exam is basedon ejb3.0. I am also preparing for this exam. I am using Manning book and i find it pretty good. I have seen few threads in this forum and lots of people who cleared this exam are also saying the same.
all the best..

No Doubt boss, Go ahead and get the Manning's Ejb 3 in action book. Sure it's worth of your money and time

Hi Vishal,
I suggest you to go with Manning EJB 3 in action. That is a very good book, which explains the topics in a very nice way. Even I'm new to EJB technology and i did not find any difficulty in reading that book.
I've actually bought that book only after taking suggestions from so many people in this community.

 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
