I asked: "Do You Love EJBs?" @Devoxx and...
...I'm still alive :-). Actually I was surprised during my short "task force" at Devoxx by several things:
- The interests about EJBs and the amount of attendees. My session: "EJB 3.1 From Legacy Technology To Secret Weapon" was the very last one ...and the THX-cinema :-) was almost full.
- The questions during the session. People ask me stuff like: "Is it better to go with WebBeans instead of EJBs?"
- The immediate feedback afterwards. I got immediately several emails with statements like: "I attended your presentation during Devoxx08, and I confess it was a relief to figure out it was not just me using EJB instead of ..."
It's kind of funny that you had a packed audience, yet people who use EJB seem to think that they are the only ones using it until they attend a presentation like yours. Its like all EJB users are in the closet and keep it a secret.

the only remaining problem is the name of the spec - "EJB". Some people still remember the 2.X, even 1.0 days :-)
thanks && regards,

Well done Adam, congrats.
On the other side, the whole fight about the best persistence technique was a load of rubbish. Most people working on things outside of Spring- or Webprojects don't ever have the chance to choose.

what do you mean exactly by "fight about the best persistence technique was a load of rubbish"?
Why do you don't have a choice?
but: thanks for your comment,

How do you approach the testing of EJB's, session and entity beans? EJB3Unit? I've tried it a bit, and the project seems interesting, but I've stumbled across a couple of issues I haven't been able to fix.
