Hi Reza,

It's very appreciated you've considered OpenEJB as a platform to port
the examples. It's definitely worth its time as it's the default (and
only) ejb container of Geronimo. When Geronimo passed the Java EE 5
TCK it proved OpenEJB 3.0 is fully EJB 3.0 spec compliant (yet
there're some missing features that could make it even better).

It's because OpenEJB 1.0 is the previous EJB 2.1 container (and am not
even sure it supported it fully). Anyway, OpenEJB 3.0 is there to
serve your EJB 3.0 development needs, but the final 3.0 has not been
released yet.

Well said. It should be a priority #1 for this week.
