Introduction to EJB3

Introduction to Enterprise Java Beans 3.x

The Introduction to EJB3 training course provides a code-level overview of the three key EJB technologies: Session Beans, Entity Beans, and Message-Driven Beans. The Introduction to EJB3 training begins with a review of distributed programming concepts, and then moves into an examination of reusable business logic with Session Beans, persistence with Entity Beans (also known as JPA Entities), and workflow logic using Message Driven Beans. The course concludes with a discussion about using EJBs as web service endpoints, implementing transaction policies, and configuring EJB security.

Introduction to EJB3 can be delivered using Java EE 5 (EJB 3.0), Java EE 6 (EJB 3.1) or Java EE 7 (EJB 3.2) using the Application Server and IDE of your choice.
