Java | J2EE | Enterprise Java Beans
Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB) is a specification for building server-side components in Java. It is part of the Java Enterprise Edition (Java EE) platform, a collection of technologies and APIs for enterprise-level application development. EJB allows developers to create modular, reusable components that can be easily integrated into larger applications.
EJB components are typically used to implement business logic and complex operations, such as database access and transactions. They can be deployed on a Java EE application server that provides a runtime environment and additional services such as security, scalability, and concurrency.
EJB-related technologies include JavaServer Faces (JSF), Java Persistence API (JPA), and Java Transaction API (JTA). JSF is a framework for building Web user interfaces, JPA is a specification for object-relational mapping and data persistence, and JTA is a specification for managing transactions in Java. Together, these technologies can be used to build powerful and scalable enterprise applications in Java.
BITS experts have used Enterprise JavaBeans in a variety of projects. A selection of case studies and references can be found below.
