Hello,
I am new to EJB, and dont know where to start, i have created and worked with stateless and stateful session beans in EJB2.0, is the process to create these on EJB3 the same?
but one thing i am unable to understand is the concept of creating and working with the persistent beans.
Please someone tell me which book should i follow?
is there any book on EJB 3, that contains the step by step descriptions for creating and working with persistent beans?

One main difference is that you don't have to implement so many interfaces and provide life cycle callback methods while developing an EJB even though you don't use them. It simplifies the programming model to a great extent.
but one thing i am unable to understand is the concept of creating and working with the persistent beans.

If you ever work with ORM framework like Hibernate then you already familiar with this. It's the POJOs what act like the Entity beans in EJB2.
Please someone tell me which book should i follow?

EJB3 In Action by Manning is a good one.
