How does Jtrix differ from EJBs?

Nik Silver

Enterprise JavaBean (EJB) technology is all about distributed objects, while Jtrix is all about distributed services.

EJBs have the advantage that they do a lot for you, such as transactions and database access, but they are very much tied to the model of client/database access in a trusted intranet environment.

By contrast, Jtrix allows you build from the ground up and its concept of service is much broader. Also, one of the services that Jtrix can offer and use is a hosting service, so Jtrix applications can move and live entirely distributedly and freely in a less trusted Internet environment. Jtrix provides a wonderful platform on which to build an EJB server.
