The same is true of JPA and CDI as well. Intelligent defaulting is especially important when you’re dealing with automated persistence using JPA. 4 Dependency injection versus JNDI lookup EJB 3 was reengineered from the ground up for dependency injection. This means that you can inject EJBs into other Java EE components and inject Java EE components into EJBs. This is especially true when using CDI with EJB 3. sayHello("Curious George"); } Isn’t that great? The @EJB annotation B transparently “injects” the HelloUserBean EJB into the annotated variable.

The first is JPA, which is the persistence standard for Java EE and CDI, and provides dependency injection and context management services to all Java EE components including EJB. 1 saw JPA 2 moved from an EJB 3 API to a completely separate Java EE specification. But JPA has some specific runtime integration points with EJB because the specifications are so closely related. We’ll say just a few things about JPA here because we have chapters dedicated to it. Persistence is the ability to have data contained in Java objects automatically stored into a relational database like Oracle database, SQL server database, and DB2 database.

5 CDI versus EJB injection EJB-style injection predates CDI. Naturally, this means that CDI injection adds a number of improvements over EJB injection. Most importantly, CDI can be used to inject almost anything. EJB injection, on the other hand, can only be used with objects stored in JNDI, such as EJB, as well as some container-managed objects like the EJB context. CDI is far more type-safe than EJB. Generally speaking, CDI is a superset of EJB injection. sayHello("Curious George"); } It might seem that CDI should be used for all Java EE injections, but it currently has a limitation.
