Have you used Enterprise JavaBeans (EJBs) to support your servlets on a production site?

  • http://polyphyllus.net/site/360-deals.com/ (3 Dec 2015 00:00)
  • Very true! Makes a change to see sooneme spell it out like that. :) (18 Oct 2015 00:00)
  • k (18 Jan 2006 00:00)
  • no - in the future, maybe (26 Sep 2002 00:00)
  • NO! (5 Apr 2002 00:00)
  • Entity bean is just overkill. Who can do it the best? I believe this is Database Vendor. (12 Jan 2002 00:00)
  • Why on earth would I want to introduce even more network latency, PNS dependencies and generally unnecessarily complexity to a production website? (12 Dec 2001 00:00)
  • But I'd like to someday. (20 Nov 2001 00:00)
  • that hammer is too big for my nails (16 Nov 2001 00:00)
  • Know a lot about EJB, particularly that there is significant overhead. Haven't found the right application yet. (11 Nov 2001 00:00)
  • It needs an investment in time. (9 Nov 2001 00:00)
  • When we started, EJB wasn't ready. Now that I know more about it, I'm glad we don't use it. I don't understand how Entity beans can scale on sites that get millions of hits a day. (7 Nov 2001 00:00)
  • In the projects we do, there no need. JSP is just enough for us. (5 Nov 2001 00:00)
  • Plan to avoid EJB in favor of JSP tags and Struts action classes. (2 Nov 2001 00:00)
  • Never had the need for them, really. (1 Nov 2001 00:00)
  • Jason, I would be interested in what others thinks about JDO, too - when is its use appropriate, and when not? (29 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • Too slow. (29 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • Getting there, haven't had a chance to use them yet. (27 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • All my clients where using only 1 server to run their web application. I did not see big advantages of using EJB with only one server(No load balancing, No distributed web applications) (27 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • a way tooo slow (26 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • Not yet, but I am going to use EJBs in my current project. (26 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • Too slow (26 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • Why complicate the process, JavaBeans on the web server are so simple. (26 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • Large, opaque, overly complex model (25 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • assumed RMI or JMS was slower than custom sockets protocol (25 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • There's a great deal of overhead associated with EJBs. EJB technology is useful in a J2EE architecture but many sites don't require enterprise level support. (25 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • i know exactly when to use EJBs (25 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • So far, there has been no need. JSP and servlets have been sufficient. But it probably has to do with scope/scale. (25 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • Overkill in many applications, but I think they will be the norm eventually - in another year or so... (25 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • but I plan to at least use CMP (25 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • Servlets solves ours problems. We still dont neee EJB. What they do , that servelts cant do ? (25 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • Overkill (25 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • I have done numerous servlet based products. None needed ejbs, a servlet engine was more then enough. (25 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • Currently to much overhead (25 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • we should and will soon (25 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • Took Brett Maclaughlin 's advice, use it where you need scalability (25 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • I think that it is often overkill, especially if the app isn't an enterprise-wide app. We have also deployed enterprise wide apps successfully without EJB. It's much simplier! (25 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • still looking into it (25 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • The size sites we design don't call for the added complexity. (25 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • to difificult to implement quickly (25 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • Overkill for our needs (25 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • Not worth it for a small DB site (25 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • But I strongly expect to use them in the future (25 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • It (and database in general) does seem as an overkill for my particular application. We use XML files. (25 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • Would like to use, but haven't seen any compelling real-scale usage reports, plus have seen much bad press on EJB problems (25 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • Torque within turbine gave me all that I needed (25 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • Overkill!! (25 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • does not feel like a good technology (25 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • We're still working on stabilizing our EJB environment. (25 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • But we are about to do so now, as at long last we have sorted out when and how we want to develop and use them. (24 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • overkill (24 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • EJB should be more simple to develop...and we need an open source reference implementation EJB server... (24 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • I knew they were not useful before making that mistake! (24 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • Want to, but intimdated by effort (24 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • We're considering it as a future option, but for the time being, it is an overkill for us. (24 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • will in 2 months (24 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • Still using JDK 1.1 (24 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • don't plan to use for simple websites; but definitely for enterprise systems (24 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • But I want to. (24 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • JDBC Rocks! (24 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • they seem so proprietary--almost foreboding (24 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • use servlets, our own factory management and database persistence (24 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • A total mess (24 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • I haven't really seen the need yet. A good persistence solution (we use TOPLink) works quite well. (24 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • We are considering (24 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • no app server yet though (24 Oct 2001 00:00)
  • Haven't needed them enough yet. (24 Oct 2001 00:00)
