If you think that you've found an error in this book, please let us know by emailing to editorial@apress.com . You will find any confirmed erratum below, so you can check if your concern has already been addressed.

On page 51:

The error isn't on page 48, but rather there is a problem with the source code for Chapter 2. In the pom.xml file for chapter 2 code, the dependencies javax.persistence and eclipselink both use version 1.1.0-snapshot. This does not work for me, and furthermore in the text, page 51, it shows the pom.xml without snapshot appended.

On page 196-197:
The 'mvn package' command is discussed in page 196. However, the result of this command appears to depend on the BookEJBTest class, whose modification is discussed later in the next page. If a reader is developing as she is reading the book, she would not have modified the BookEJBTest class when reading page 196. The 'mvn package' command execution will give errors.
