The EJB 3.0 standard is a vast improvement over 2.1, for sure, but Spring 3.0 has many advantages over EJB3. Using annotations in POJOs couples the DB columns to the POJO properties in a way that may not be desirable. This means that the POJOs' annotations would have to be edited and then recompiled if the underlying DB column label changes.
