InfoQ Article: EJB 3 Essential Glossary

Bookmarks
InfoQ is hosting an EJB 3.0 glossary of new terms and API elements introduced in EJB 3. It explains buzzwords like Inversion of Control (IoC), Configuration by Exception, POJO, POJI, Dependency Injection etc, etc. The glossary is an ongoing work in progress.  The authors Oliver Ihns (EJB 3 expert group member), and Stefan M. Heldt will be continually making updates to it over time, so feel free to check back and also contribute new terms to in this thread.

Check out the  EJB 3.0 Glossary.

The authors maintain a version in German on their site, and they are also co-authors of a German-language EJB book.

    Sorry, but this glossary seems to add more confusion than clarification to the terms. Some things are misleading while others are just wrong.

    Hi Mike, it is a work in progress, I'll email you and connect you with the author who I am sure will be happy to fix whatever you've noticed. Thanks.

    Hi Mike.

    I'm so sorry. As I must see we do have some problems with the translation from German to English and with the extraction from our wiki where the original text is located... The source code is somewhat messed up ... brrrrrrrrr. The actual published version is old and buggy.. Again: I'm sorry for that. I will provide a new version ASAP.

    Cheers,
    Oliver
