Back Cover

“... wonderful writing style ... one of the most enjoyable technical reads ... explanation of the concepts is easy to absorb, entertaining, informative, and to the point.” --Dave Wiltz, SBC Global

Enterprise JavaBeans-the server-side core of J2EE application development-has been both hailed as the savior of Java enterprise programming and cursed as the bane of Java development. Complexity brings power, but it can also lead to confusion and frustration. What are the best ways to become productive with EJB?

Bitter EJB addresses the controversy head on. The authors identify and explain common EJB traps and distill them into “antipatterns.” These antipatterns encapsulate for you some of the most important EJB problems, from persistence to performance. With a clear understanding of what not to do, you will appreciate the value of the detailed best practices recommended in the book.

What's Inside

  • Managing session state
  • Alternatives to entity beans
  • Performance tuning techniques
  • XDoclet, Ant and JUnit best practices
  • Avoid pitfalls of:    - message-driven beans    - entity beans    - session beans
