6.26. Looking Ahead ...
This chapter discussed reasons for and against using EJBs. We added the ability to buy a car on the JAW Motors web site by introducing an InventoryFacade Stateless Session Bean that encapsulates business logic and uses CMT to manage transactions. Along the way, we introduced expected improvements with EJB 3.0, showed the relationship between Hibernate 3 and CMT, and deployed our new Session Bean on JBoss.
In the next chapter, we'll add an MDB to the JAW Motors Application.
