Sun has released the draft specification for Enterprise Java Beans, widely considered to be a major step in readying the Java programming language for mission-critical business applications.
The release of the draft spec was originally expected in November. The delay was reportedly caused by last-minute changes requested by Oracle and IBM, two of Sun?s partners in the development of EJB.
The EJB specification extends the Java Beans component model. It provides developers with a richer programming interface, tailored to the needs of enterprise software development. With EJB, developers will be able to create platform-independent, component-based enterprise applications that can interoperate with existing systems.
After public review of the draft, a final spec is expected to be posted early next year. The draft can be downloaded at http://java.sun.com/products/ejb/docs.html.
