Finally, after almost 4 months of development, Thanksgiving, Christmas, consulting priorities, and children being born, JBoss EJB 3.0 RC4-PFD is finally out and available for use. This is a major release with over 68 tasks complete. We are about 99% compliant with the EJB 3.0 Proposed Final Draft and a lot of major and minor bugs have been fixed. You can download the standalone release on sourceforge. This distribution works with JBoss4.0.3SP1 application server. JBoss 4.0.4RC1 will be out soon with a full app-server distribution. You can view documentation at docs.jboss.org, or just download the standalone distribution which has doco as well as 30+ tutorials.
A lot has changed in this release both in the specification and the way JBoss implements EJB 3.0. Check out the EJB 3.0 WIKI for details on how to migrate from an older version of JBoss EJB 3.0. It is going to be an annoying process to migrate because of all the minor annoying little changes here and there, but please have patience. Since our WIKI is editable by anybody, please help us out to expand these guides! BTW, if you get really upset with some of the default JNDI binding changes, please send your hate mail to Gavin King and Christian Bauer.
Special thanks goes out to Gavin King for putting up with all my bitchin' and whining in the late hours of the night. And always, Emmanuel Bernard for doing a kick ass job on the Hibernate side of things.
