The rumors of Java EE being overly bloated and EJBs being heavyweight components are true only if you look at them with respect to their potential capabilities and potential complexity. That is, Java EE and EJBs have wide-ranging potential, rock-solid, thoroughly tested, enterprise level capabilities. But, enactment of the more complex capabilities is not required. At their most basic level, EJBs are lightweight, fully-scalable, components. Adam reiterated this point in our interview last week, when I asked him if EJBs are an option that Java developers could apply in meeting the "Multicore Challenge": EJBs are lightweight since 2006. They were always perfectly scalable on multicore systems because of their procedural nature. I actually never had any scalability problems with EJBs and was always surprised by their good performance...
