    EJB 3.0 stable enough for production ?

    Anders Thörnström Newbie

      We are just starting a small J2EE project with Jboss as server and I first thought we should go for the jboss-4.0.3SP1 release and use hibernate 3.0.5 since this is the latest stable version. But it would be a shame to use EJB 2.1 session beans and hibernate if the jboss-4.0.4rc1 is stable enough so we can use EJB 3.0 instead. I would guess that the project will go live in 2-3 month..

      It is going to use some webservices otherwise just jsp, struts and mysql.
      What is your opinion of this ? is it a good idea ?

      many thanks!

          There's a lot of companies using our EJB3 in production, believe it or not. Check my blog for a couple, but there are a lot more that I'm not allowed to divulge.

          EJB3 is getting pretty stable, We've had like 10 releases of it over the past 2 years. One problem we have though is that there is no webservices support yet. We plan on releasing that in a limited fashion in JBoss 4.0.4RC2. What do you need for Webservice support? WE will support writing a webservice, but an EJB3 will not be able to use the service references.

            Hi thanks for the response!
            Well we need to use a WSDL 1.1 service, it would be favorable to do it from a session bean (because it would be good to do it in a transaction), but it probably could be done outside one also.. is there a good way to do that ?
