Oracle today announced the availability of Oracle(R) Application Server Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB) 3.0 Preview, which enables Java application developers to obtain hands-on experience with this latest specification, designed to significantly ease application development.
With the EJB 3.0 Preview, Oracle now delivers the most comprehensive implementation of EJB 3.0 specification accessible today. It is the only implementation that offers testability outside of the container and demonstrates how to address backward compatibility, interoperability and migration issues — making it easier for developers to benefit from EJB 3.0 without having to rewrite existing applications. Oracle JDeveloper, a comprehensive Java and Web services integrated development environment and Oracle TopLink, a Java object-to-relational persistence architecture, will also leverage the EJB 3.0 specification. The EJB 3.0 Preview is available free for download at http://www.oracle.com/technology.
