  • 5 starsA very good starting point.

    If you are new to J2EE, and if you are not always online, you should use this book to get the big picture of J2EE. Go through it, skip details you may not need, focus on understanding concepts, use the online-documentation later on during your coding. I was testing the examples with the J2EE RI, with BEA, and with JBOSS. Every platform has had its own problems, but at the end, the examples were running each time. During my career I was reading lots of docs, but this one is well-written, clear and concise, it covers the most important aspects, I think, and let you the freedom to skip, what you think you may not need the first time.

  • 2 starsSame as the Sun J2EE Tutorial

    This book does not offer much more than the Sun J2EE Tutorial online does and that is free. I have worked through the first two weeks, and I have decided to shelve it. The book starts strong with the JNDI. There are plenty of code listings for you to type in and try with good explanations on naming, binding, and lookup. After this the book is nothing more than a rehash of the Sun Online tutorial with a different larger example application. The application is complete. You don't do anything but read about the design and pertinent Java technologies that are being used for that particular part of the application. Then you are given instructions on how to deploy the current working piece of the application on the J2EE RI, and run sample clients against it - chapter after chapter of the same thing. Though this type of learning by reading some one else code with explanations seems to be enjoyed by some. I side with Ivor Horton. Programming is not a spectator sport. You learn by doing. Having the reader build the application and participate in the process would have made for a better learning experience of a complex topic.

  • 1 starsComplete, no.

    If you follow the directions for loading the software "included" you will have problems. I hope the content is better.

    1. The J2EE SDK is not included on the CD. The J2SE SDK is. Why?

    2. The installation instructions are for three different OSs. They are jumbled, rather than covering one OS and going to the next. It's a mess.

    3. Path length limitations for Windows 2000 are not addressed. Follow their directions for the JAVA_HOME path and you get nothing, unless you are very lucky. Granted the book is not about windows but the installation instructions should be correct and complete.

    Maybe the content will get better but if you can't get there then what good is it. Just get a reference manual.
