More praises for EJB 3 In Action

EJB 3 In Action gets Five STARs rating from Cicero Zandoná of JavaLobby.
Here is some excerpt from his review:

If you want an EJB 3.0 book to read from cover-to-cover this is the one. You will learn how to create an EJB application, the concepts related to them and receive a lot of useful advice.
I really can't give this book less then five "stars".

Here is an interesting comment from the book:

One of the authors, Debu Panda is a Lead Product Manager of the Oracle Application Server development team, and I was afraid this could lead to a biased book. Fortunately this doesn't happen at all, he is completely impartial along the book and always warns the reader about vendor-dependent features.

I'm really happy that everyone seems to like the Sadhu story that I started the book with. Here is what Cicero puts in his review:

In an unusual beginning for a technical book, the authors start talking about ladybugs, elephants and cows (one of the authors name is Panda by the way). But I can't think in a more gentle and creative way to illustrate the specification evolution than the analogy they made (you can read the tale in Meera's review).

Finally I found you on the blog too. Will always keep myself updated with your insights. And probably try to use them as I start using Java for my projects.

Hello,

About to buy your book.
Using Apress today, 'EJB 3 application development, from novice to professional' and it does not have a good layout.
Hoping that your book has a better layout so I can use it when teaching EJB 3 to my students.
I can sense, not knowing, that you only provide Oracle examples - often easy to translate to another db-engine - but would appreciate if one was able to download examples for more db-engine than one.

Hello!

Reading your article on ONJava (http://www.onjava.com/pub/a/onjava/2006/01/04/dependency-injection-java-ee-5.html?page=4)
Wanting to understand the IoC or DI.
You use the following example when describing @EJB:

@EJB(name="ProcessManager")
private ProcessManager pm;
pm.submitOrder(order);

But, but ... how does the ejb-jar.xml look like ? I mean, where does the ProcessManager come from?
As a newcomer I cannot see that.
Could you clarify this example ?
