    Migrating ejb 2.1 (Session Beans and MDB) to ejb 3.1


      Can you suggest the step by step document / book for migrating ejb 2.1 to ejb 3.1 / 3.0 ? As migration may involve multiple ejb projects automated processed will help a lot.

      Below are the other detail:

      Websphere 8.1

          The only book you need is one that teaches you how to use the EJB 3.1 spec. I recommend Enterprise Javabeans 3.1 by O'Reilly publishing.

          When you've learned how to properly use EJB 3.0/3.1, the migration should not be so hard - but it will probably still be a lot of work. Depending on what the EJB 2.1 applications do there is no clear-cut steps to follow though; at least the entity layer will require a rewrite to get it to the JPA specification, its not as easy as putting some annotations and swapping out some code.
