  • 5 starsAuthoritative and it shows!! A book for now and the future.

    Two things about the book worried me at first: the size (I was expecting more) and the number of authors. However, after just the first two chapters it was clear that the authors know their stuff (they seem to have been influencing J2EE for years) and can cram a lot of information into a relatively small space *without* losing any detail or making it impossible to follow.

    I liked the way that the sample app. runs through the book and they build up on it as they tackle each subject. That's pretty cool and helps to put things into perspective. I also liked the fact that they touch on some of the things that may be coming round the corner (1.5 I suppose). So, this book doesn't just stop at J2EE 1.4 - it's given me insight into what to expect in future releases. Very cool.

    My recommendation? Buy it. You won't regret it. This is a good book for newbies and seasoned professionals alike.

  • 5 starsExpertly written and easy to follow

    I'm relatively new to Java and J2EE, so this book was kind of like jumping in to the deep end. However, thanks to the authors' clear and concise writing style, I learned to swim pretty quickly in the new J2EE 1.4 pool! The size of the book was a bit daunting at first, but I decided to give it a go. I found the book really pulled the concepts together and presented them in a useful way.

    This isn't the first J2EE book I've read, but it is definitely the best I've come across so far. After finishing the book (which is well worn and dog-eared now!) I feel like I'm ready to tackle some of the new concepts in J2EE 1.4. I certainly won't be spending money on another 1.4 book in the forseeable future.

    My recommendation in a nutshell would be: buy it - you won't regret it if you're prepared to put the effort into reading it.

  • 5 starsreads like a novel

    The best book on J2EE i've seen --- this is an excellent introduction to this vast subject, combining the insight of several experts in the field. This book can actually be read chapter by chapter without being boring. It's written in an amazingly refreshing style and doesn't dwell on the API level but succeeds in capturing the higher-level design and usage patterns. This makes the knowledge collected in this book independent of the actual technology and therefore valid for years to come. Highly recommended!
