Best in deepth EJB usage guide for JEE developers. Definitely not for beginners, but perfect for developers that have some experience with EJB but do not feel comfortable with their knowledge level.

Thought “EJB 3 in Action” (first edition) was a great book, so I'm not surprised that I like the second edition as well. In fact a snippet from my first review is on page one of the second edition.

I really liked the story at the beginning comparing 3 reincarnations to the three versions of EJB. The Turtle Shipping Company and Snail Trucking example was also very cute. As were the chicken and frog.

One page 17, the text after the example talks about not needing an interface, but the code example

EJB In Action Second Edition makes good reading. It provides clear explanations of the various technologies used in EJB. I think that book is a kind of lecture and it is suitable for user who wants to know how different technologies are working like for e.g. when and why use EJB or CDI injection and wants to have well-grounded knowledge about EJB 3.2.

Half way through I realized the examples were too much trouble. Not enough comments to help, so I decided maybe EJB doesn't have enough support.
A good starting point for EJB3

Recommends it for: no one.
This book just isn't very good. There are much better books about JPA and the coverage in this book of anything other than entity beans is weak.
The source code is almost impossible to read on kindle and samples do not work.

Not all of it, only the web services and introduction. But it's a good ref.
