EJB 3 - Dead Or Alive ...very alive, See Quickvote Results
JavaMagazin, one of the biggest, German Java related magazines, started an online survey (quickvote) with the question EJB - Dead Or Alive. The result really surprised me:
Quickvote: [freely translated by me, here the origin]
EJB - Dead Or Alive?
I'm using EJB 3. (58%)
I don't use EJB and "pure" Web-Stack instead (Tomcat & Co.). (12%)
I don't use EJB and the alternative Stacks instead (Spring & Co.). (22%)
Participants: 1375 (at 19.08.2008)
What surprised me: the small percentage of EJB 2.X. In Germany there is still huge amount of EJB 2.0 projects. Most of them will be ported to Java EE 5 next time. The second surprise was the EJB 3 adoption. I'm using EJB 3 in several projects but the amount of 58% (in this context) is huge. I actually thought, the aggregated amount of the alternatives will be greater, than EJB 3 and 2 together, but the opposite is true.
Hopefully this survey was not sponsored by the "EJB-Mafia" :-). So if you would like to keep your job and learn more about EJB 3 start here :-).
Thanks, Adam, for the posting.
Yes, I think the results are quite surprising, too. Even if it's "just" a quick vote, the numbers are impressing. That means for us: we are going to emphasize more on EJB topics on http://JAXenter.de and in Java Magazine.
By the way: there's a new quick vote online today. We are asking for the future of OSGi ;)

then: the future of Enterprise Java With EJB 3 is bright! :-).
Regarding OSGI: it is important to separate the concerns of the vendors from the developers.
thanks for the comment!,
