EJB3 Core Specification (JSR-220)
EJB3 (JSR-220) offers some great improvements over the prior EJB specs in terms of development simplicity and new features. In this session we will explore in detail some of the new features of the core EJB 3 specification. Included in this session will be a hands-on discussion and demonstration of session beans, dependency injection, interceptors (aop), and Message-Driven Beans (MDB). For the interceptors discussion I will be showing how to define interceptors for enabling a method trace, mocking objects, and sending JMS message notifications to be later picked up by the MDBs I will be creating. During the session I will demonstrate the new features of EJB 3 through interactive coding examples. Note: this session does not cover the new Java Persistence API (JPA) - only the core specification.
Agenda - Introduction - Constructing and Accessing EJB 3 Session Beans - Dependency Injection - Interceptors (AOP) - Method Trace - Mock Objects - Sending JMS Message Notifications - Message-Driven Beans (MDB) - Using XML over Annotations - Summary and Discussion
