May 2006 Meeting Minutes

The Tampa Java User Group's May meeting had a great turn out with 16
people in attendance to hear about EBJ3. The presentation offered an
introductory look into the simplicity of the new EBJ3 technology.

The presenter, Dave Zafferey, a veteran of EBJ development, provided
valuable information about the new technology. He provided
comparative information between previous version of EBJ and the new
one. The presentation included plenty of code samples and an actual
demo using Jboss' implementation of EJB3.

Material for the presentation will be made available soon.

We look forward to see everyone at the next meeting. Bring a Java
friend next time.

Special Thanks:
Dave Zafferey - Presentater

May 2006 Meeting - EBJ3: A Look at What's New

Java Enterprise 5 is all the talk at this year’s JavaOne ( One of the most exiting update to enterprise edition 5 of Java is the new version of Enterprise Java Bean – EJB3. Anyone who has done EBJ development before version 3 can attest to steep learning curve and the numerous artifacts that are involved in creating just one enterprise bean.

The great promise of EJB3 is ease of use. Taking a page from frameworks such as Hibernate and Spring, EBJ3 uses POJO (plain old Java object) and a straight forward persistent mechanism. Using Java 5 annotation facility, developer can simply mark the object using different tags to indicate the type and functionalities of the enterprise bean class (see EJB3 example)

In the next Tampa Java User Meeting, speaker Dave Zafferey will explore the new EBJ3 features that will impact your enterprise development. He will also look at tools available for EJB3 development including vendor application servers and IDE options.
