EJB - Dead Or Alive?
I'm using EJB 3. (58%)
I don't use EJB and "pure" Web-Stack instead (Tomcat & Co.). (12%)
I don't use EJB and the alternative Stacks instead (Spring & Co.). (22%)
Participants: 1375 (at 19.08.2008)
What surprised me is the small percentage of EJB 2.X that seems to be in use. In Germany, there is still a huge number of EJB 2.0 projects around. Most of them will be ported to Java EE 5 next time round.
The second surprise is the level EJB 3 adoption. I'm using EJB 3 in several projects, but the amount of 58% in this context is huge. I actually thought that the aggregated amount of the alternatives would be greater than EJB 3 and 2 together, but the opposite is true.
Hopefully this survey was not sponsored by the "EJB-Mafia" :-). So if you would like to keep your job and learn more about EJB 3 start here in my blog. :-).
