"This book is a must-have for developers who want to jumpstart their EJB development process. Ed Roman shows the right way to use the J2EE technology with in-depth examples and coding patterns from the real world. We recommend this book as part of our education materials for both in-house staff and customer engagements." - William W. Lee, Chief Technology Officer, The Theory Center

What some are calling the best thing to happen to enterprise programming since Java itself, Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB) radically streamlines the server-side application development process. In this book, you'll learn EJB from a developer's perspective---the author cuts through the marketing hype and shows you both the good and the bad in developing real-world EJB applications. You'll learn everything you need to jumpstart your EJB development, --from understanding the basics of the EJB architecture, to developing transactional, scalable, and secure multi-user enterprise applications. After reading this book, you'll know how to:
* Develop with both EJB 1.0 as well as the new EJB 1.1 standard
* Master the technologies that complement EJB: Java RMI, RMI-IIOP, JTA, JNDI, CORBA, and XML. E(each of these topics is covered in full)
* Develop with both bean types: session beans (stateful and stateless), and entity beans (bean-managed and container-managed persistent)
* Design, implement, and deploy a real-world e-commerce system, with a total of nine enterprise beans and seven Java servlets
* Avoid pitfalls that could make your code non-portable across EJB servers
* Make an educated EJB server purchase decision

The CD-ROM provides you with:
* An immense amount of sample code that you can extend for your own needs
* A trial of the BEA WebLogic EJB server for getting started right away

On the companion Web site you'll find:
* Updates to the book
* A treasure trove of links to EJB and J2EE resources
