Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 833779
Information about entity beans is missing
Last modified: 2013-03-20 21:56:07 EDT
There are missing information about existence of entity beans in paragraph that introduces EJB beans (documentation-stage.bne.redhat.com/docs/en-US/JBoss_Enterprise_Application_Platform/6/html-single/Administration_and_Configuration_Guide/index.html#Enterprise_JavaBeans).
Specification of EJB3 covers specification of EJB2 as well so the entity beans are still valid to use.
Actually upon closer inspection this section "16.1.3" should be removed. It is titled "Enterprise JavaBeans", but actually is a description of "Enterprise Beans". The following section, "16.1.4", actually describes Enterprise Beans including reference to 2.x Entity Beans although it doesn't explicitly state that EJB3.x includes the features of 2.x.
I'll remove 16.1.3 and update the other section to make it more clear that EJB3.x includes the functionality of 2.x.
Sorry, 16.1.3 didn't get removed. Rebuild tomorrow afternoon should be missing it.
Clarified entity beans with the following text:
"There are three types of Enterprise Bean: Session beans, Message-driven beans and Entity beans.
Entity beans are now deprecated in EJB 3.1 and Red Hat recommends the use of JPA entities instead. Red Hat only recommends the use of Entity beans for backwards compatibility with legacy systems.
section is actually removed now
