Scaling Enterprise Java on 64-bit Multi-Core X86-Based Servers
Publish Date: Nov. 1, 2006
Today's enterprise server--indeed, the environment--isn't what it was when Java was born. Slow networked machines have been replaced by fast, 64-bit multi-core servers that can house all your tiers in one box or even virtualize servers within the server. This has a significant effect on the design and deployment of your Java enterprise application, and Michael Yuan and Dave Jaffe show you how to get the most out of your hardware.

Spring and EJB 3.0 are both reactions, in their own ways, to the complexity of EJB 2.1 and the complaints piled upon it. Both support developing with Plain Old Java Objects (POJOs) and give the framework responsibility for handling transactions, security, persistence, etc. But the two use substantially different approaches. In this article, Michael Yuan puts the two frameworks up against one another to see how they stack up.
