EJBs and J2EE-based Business Applications
"Your present circumstances don't determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start."
In This Chapter
Introduction to EJB
Understanding EJB Roles
Types of EJB
Adapters and Beans
This chapter is a quick overview of Enterprise Java Beans (EJB) and their role in J2EE-based business applications. Components of an application EJB will be the primary clients of resource adapters, and hence resource adapter developers need to understand the dynamics of EJB. Entire books are focused on EJB programming, and therefore this chapter focuses on how EJB and JCA resource adapters can work together in the context of J2EE applications.
