EJB 3.0 Database Persistence with Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g : Review

This is a good book (→tutorial) for any developer that wants to use EJB 3.0 with the most popular Oracle J2EE technologies.

The book starts with a simple introduction of EJB 3.0 and compares that spec to EJB 2.x, overviews new features such as, annotations, JPA and interceptors.

Then it goes into this topic in depth, always tied-up to JDeveloper; for instance, shows how to convert EJB 2.x to 3.0, it's a very good example if the reader comes from that legacy specification or to see explicitly how much effort we are saving coding and not generating deploy descriptors to obtain the same business/architecture JEE feature.

Continuing the Book's Oracle point of view, look into EclipseLink JPA, JDeveloper (as main IDE) and complete chapter of Eclipse OEPE and their details. Chapters dedicated to integration with ADF & JSF separately, EJB relationships, and finishing with Web Services.

A lot of details, clear explanations, source code, screen-shots of step-by-step instructions to avoid any doubt to the reader to get the best of these specs and tools.
