Topic: EJB 3.1 - Killing The Top Eleven Myths, Tales and Biases

Session: Java

EJB 3.1 is afflicted with some historical prejudices - so projects look often for alternatives without even evaluating. In this session we will go through the most popular prejudices like, EJBs are:

  1. Heavyweight
  2. Not testable
  3. Not portable
  4. Not extendible.
  5. Slow
  6. Not scalable
  7. Too complex
  8. Hard to integrate with web frameworks / RIAs / POJOs
  9. Hard to configure.
  10. Hard to migrate (from EJB 2)
  11. Hard to develop (heavy dependencies on libraries and slow deployments)

And kill them with …facts source code and samples. Remaining biases will be killed interactively during, or after the session :-).

This session has real world focus - with lot of source code samples and live demos.
