Putting Roman to Work

A lot of public review work went into writing this book. Even though this book will be available as a freely downloadable PDF, it is recommended that you buy it - in support of all the work that went in.
It details a lot that you thought you new about EJBs, and don't. Also watch for the EJB Design Patterns book, to supplement this. This book also has some good examples and best practices. It comes with a EJB poster, that is quite impressive.
It is absolutely a must have for any EJB 2.0 Developer/Architect and a great treat to start the new year.

The book is missing 50 pages and there's no remedy to get the missing pages. Check the book as soon as you get it. Pages 669-716 aren't there.

A sequel worth buying

I didn't expect this to be as good as the first book since we can assume the best 50 ideas went into the original, but I still found it to be useful. What I like about both books is that the ideas are enumerated so that I can easily find them again. There are lots of books with good ideas that I can never find again because I discovered them in some obscure chapter that I can't identify anymore.
