This first installment on TheServerSide will provide an overview of the new features in the EJB 2.1 spec, including support for Web Services through two newly added Web Services APIs: JAX-RPC and JAXM. It also discusses enhancements to the MDB programming model and improvements to EJB QL. The author, as a member of the EJB 2.1 expert group, also provides some recommended improvements to the EJB 2.1 spec.
