Hi All

I want to appear for SCBCD but I am bit confused with the versions of the same. I know going for the latest versions are always good , so I am fine with learning EJB 3.0.
But currently I am working with EJB 2.0 in my organization and all of my company projects use EJB 2.0. So I dont have an option to work with EJB 3.0 in near future.

Also I have never tasted EJB 3.0 but heard its very much different from EJB 2.0. So my questions are :
1. Shall I go ahead with the certification (SCBCD) with EJB 3.0 ? If not , Is SCBCD avaibale for EJB 2.0 ?
2. What are the changes in EJB 3.0 which makes it comepletely different from EJB 2.0 ?
3. If I go for EJB 3.0 then will the knowledge of EJB 2.0 help me to grasp the concepts quickly (afterall the basic concepts must be same) ?

Please suggest.

You have to give SCBCD 5.0. There is no other older versions of this exam available anymore. For SCBCD 5.0, you will have to prepare using the EJB 3.0 specs. EJB 2.0 knowledge will definitely count but not to a greater extent as EJB 3.0 is completely different from EJB 2.0. Read the FAQ's for more information.

May be personal choice , but it would worth in the future.

What are the changes in EJB 3.0 which makes it comepletely different from EJB 2.0 ?


There are some major differences in EJB 3; Annotations, POJO based persistence (compared to Entity beans in EJB 2.0) etc..

If I go for EJB 3.0 then will the knowledge of EJB 2.0 help me to grasp the concepts quickly (afterall the basic concepts must be same) ?


Yes, should be easy to grasp.
