Customer Reviews

This book should have been called "Java EE 6 Platform Overview with GlassFish3".
Viktoras Agejevas
They don't even list the import statements of the examples so you are forced to search for what will make the code compile.
Mark Galbreath
It's very tempting to keep on reading just because the way as well as the language the subject was presented with.

As a long time server side Java developer who has generally steered clear of the J(2)EE standard stack of EJB, JPA and JSF, in favor of Spring, Hibernate and Struts, I nevertheless wanted to take a look at the promise of the emerging Java EE 6 improvements. My goal was to evaluate whether EJB in conjunction with JPA persistence can be developed in a style that I have grown accustomed using Spring and Hibernate. Is it possible to maximize testing and debugging activities outside the EE container with version 6?

The answer to that question for me is mixed, but Beginning Java EE 6 with GlassFish came through in helping me make the evaluation. I didn't need a soup to nuts definitive guide, but a book with some breadth to be able to evaluate the platform without having to become an expert in the process. It provides enough material in each major subject area to get a simple but non-trivial example program running. In fact the chapters on JPA are fairly comprehensive and could be a nearly complete reference for building out a small to medium admin interface for a database.

It is definitely a "Beginning" book for seasoned EJB and JSF developers, as they will likely not find enough new material to warrant purchasing the book. I would not say this book is appropriate for programming beginners in general, or even experienced programmers migrating to server side Java for the first time. (Perhaps 'Introducing' in place of 'Beginning' would have conveyed this better). It can be daunting to simply set up the requisite software packages before you can create your first entity class or session bean. Author Antonio Goncalves does an excellent job outlining the necessary setup steps, and doesn't leave out important aspects, such as assuming the reader already has the JDK installed.

The book is nice to read but don't try to follow the examples! They just don't work and you will end up spending a lot of time debugging them (maybe, that is the hidden underlying concept of the book). I made it to chapter six and then gave up ...

This book appears to have a lot of great information but it is not layed out well. The book attempts to be a reference for advanced users as well as a guide for new users. Well I am new to Java EE, and the guide is not very straightforward at all. You'd probably do better to find a tutorial on the web than reading this book. I'm sure that there are some better books out there for beginners.

The author presents the most dense information at the beginning of the book. The first chapter is extremely hard to read. Even after reading it three times, I didn't get much out. The author is clearly very knowledgable, but doesn't seem to have the knack for communicating this information to a beginner.

It's greatly explained. It's great for beginners in JEE world.

1. The authors expect you to use eclipselist and Derby to run database simulations with Maven. They leave out important points, like how to import eclipselist into a Maven POM, and these contrived examples have no relevance in the RL of programming.

2. This is supposed to be a "Beginners...." book but it has no information about how to set up a Maven POM and how to run it.

3. They don't even list the import statements of the examples so you are forced to search for what will make the code compile.

4. The code in the book does not match the code in the source download; which to use? I tried both and neither worked.

5. Why isn't there peer review of books like this to keep us from spending money on worthless BS that does not reflect reality, does not work, and has no instructions on setting up an IDE?

6. I notice that all the GREAT reviews of the book must be from friends of the authors, because they discuss nothing about actually working through the book examples, which do not work.

7. I have been writing Java code since Beta 2 (1995) and have been to 5 JavaOne conferences; I spent 3 days unsuccessfully trying to get the example code to work in Chapter 2. 'Nuff said about these authors who apparently just want to make a fast buck on new technology. I am not wasting my time with the rest of this POS.

8. How the hell can an author with his credentials sleep at night knowing that what he is selling is BS?

I used to program In java around 1.4 / J2EE. I am know revisiting the platform and wanted a refresher and thought this book was a good idea - i was horribly wrong about this book!

Obviously the author knows JAVA but this book is not for beginners. On page sixteen (16) he's talking about Singleton EJB's and Annotations...huh what? how did we get here?

I flipped thru a few pages and threw the book down. Am know looking for another book. If anyone wants this i'm willing to trade!

Too aggravated and disappointed to write anymore...

The book is ok if you are looking for a rough understanding of the J2EE technology. Nothing is behind the basics. The examples don't work and often what is written in the book is not the same of the examples. There is not support online. The forum associated to the book is ridiculous.
