I’ve just posted my review of “EJB 3.1 Cookbook” over on Develop In Java.
EJB 3.1 Cookbook is an excellent resource in an EJB developer’s library. It’s not the sort of book you pick up and read from cover to cover rather a useful resource that you pick up when you think “How do I do xxx in EJB?”. With over 100 recipes this book is recommended to developers using EJB technologies.
I very much liked this book and can imagine using it frequently. You can read the whole review here.
James Sutherland has published a blog post showing how to significantly increase JPA performance.
In the post, he provides 11 different optimizations, such as pagination and query caching that can be applied to JPA. The EclipseLink JPA 3.2 implementation of JPA is used throughout the post.
This is a good article and well worth reading by anyone that develops database systems using JPA.
Packt Publishing have recently released two new books of interest to Java EE developers.
EJB 3.1 Cookbook and Java EE6 With NetBeans 7 both look like good reads and Packt have graciously agreed to send me a copy of each of these books for review, which I’ll post on the site as soon as I’ve reviewed them.
Thanks to Nicole for sorting this out for me.
