ABSTRACT: EJB3/Spring/Hibernate Comparison
In recent years we have seen the Spring/Hibernate stack displace EJB 2 as the default application framework for the hippest enterprise Java developers. EJB 3 is a huge leap forward from yesteryear’s heavyweightEJB development model. However, are the improvements to EJB 3 enough to change the enterprise Java landscape yet again?
This session offers a comparative analysis ofEJB 3 (including JPA), Spring and Hibernate to see how they really stack up with each other. The session will offer recommendations charting different courses of action depending on what is important for your application. A comparative analysis matrix will help you decide whether you should integrate parts of EJB 3 with Spring, use EJB 3 with some Spring features, port Hibernate code to JPA, move to EJB 3 altogether or use Spring/Hibernate without EJB 3.
