The days of EJB’s being the center of the Java EE universe are coming to an end. CDI is increasingly becoming the de facto component framework, due to its flexibility and lack of legacy. Starting in Java EE 7 and continuing in 8, the Java EE platform is migrating to enable all of EJB’s best features to be usable in the CDI world. In this session, you’ll learn implementation-level details on how they relate to each other, where we are in the EJB/CDI alignment story, what trade-offs you might need to make, and what you have to gain from making the transition. You will walk out with runnable examples and vendor-level insights. This is the perfect session for heavy EJB users looking to keep up with Java EE’s transition to CDI.
