Summary

     The Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition, provides an array of services to support industrial strength enterprise applications. At the core of most of these applications are EJBs of one sort or another. Throughout Getting Started with Enterprise JavaBeans, the goal has been to give you, the developer, enough background to understand how to create and work with the variety of beans available as of the EJB 2.0 specification. The discussion included, and provided examples for, stateless and stateful session beans, entity beans with bean-managed and container-managed persistence, and using message-driven beans with the Java Message Service. Along the way, the material also touched on servlets/JSPs, JDBC, and transactions.

     Now, at the end of the tutorial with a number of new skills in your toolkit, you should keep in mind that complete books have been written on each of these topics. The tutorial attempts to provide solid coverage of the most important areas, but, inevitably, some were left out. In addition, in order to focus on the topic at hand, many details were omitted to keep the material to a manageable size. While there's no substitute for (educated) hands-on programming, you can also find yourself beating your head against the walls that will surely arise. Making use of the provided Resources, as well as other reading and discussions, will help you in the move from beginning to intermediate and, finally, to expert J2EE and EJB developer. The message is that, with persistence, you can eventually find yourself in that expert state.
