A few critical bug fixes in this release. Also, we've done some prototyping of some extensions to EJB 3.0. Specifically:
- Service EJBs. Singleton services that can publish Local, Remote and new JMX @Management interfaces. Also support JBoss service lifecylce callbacks and dependencies.
- Message Drive POJOs. MDBs with a typed interface. No more verbose messaging code.
- Lightweight local/remote Asynchronous proxies. Any local or remote EJB reference of any EJB type can be transformed into an asynchronous interface so that you can invoke EJB methods asynchronously.
