The title of this book is spot on: Enjoying Web Development with Tapestry. I actually enjoyed going through this 500 page tutorial of how to create web applications using Tapestry 4. It starts off with getting Eclipse set up to debug a Hello World application in Tomcat, and then goes on to cover just about every aspect of Tapestry.

The book is full of screenshots and code examples. The examples are complete and they work (which I can't say for many other books). For each chapter, the author takes you through writing new code and then improving the code more and more. The tutorial fashion was easy to follow. New lines of code are in bold, deleted or changed lines in strikethrough.

I had been using Tapestry 3 and I was having a difficult time learning Tapestry 4 through the documentation online so I thought I would try this book. Just about every chapter by itself would be worth the price of the book to me.

My favorite topics were:

- Tapestry Annotations

- Testing using HtmlUnit

- Avoiding concurrency problems

- Hivemind usage

- Integration with Hibernate

I have read about 50 books on web development and I have been a Java web developer for about 7 years and this on of the best books I have ever read in the topic of web development. If you are developing web applications with Tapestry, I would highly recommend this book.

I was a little skeptical at first about purchasing this book, since I generally can work my way through things with the standard documentation. But after downloading the preview of the first four chapters, I found it invaluable in helping me with an application I am building because it started with the thinks you need to know first in a typical dynamic web site. In this case, the initial chapters where about receiving data from forms filled in by the user and validating this input. But it wasn't just that that then convinced me to pay for and download the full pdf. There were two other things. a) Although they are rather spiderish, there are useful diagrams which show you how the requests are processed step by step. I have a visual mind, and picturing the process really helped me understand it, and b) As part of the process of building the examples, the book shows lots of steps between the simple but inflexible approach to the fully fledged Tapestry way (including some of the steps you might try but will not work). As a result it introduces concepts that I had seen in the documentation but not understood what they were for. Now at last I understood them. I haven't been through all the chapters in the full download that weren't in the preview yet, but already I have my eye specifically on some of them to explore further (Javascript, Test Driven Development, and Database Concurrency Issues).

I wanted to start developing with Tapestry in a timely manner. First book which I read was by Howard Lewis Ship, "Tapestry in Action". It is good, especially if you want to understand how everything works inside of Tapestry. But if you want to begin from the very beginning and to find solutions for the problems which you encounter building your first (and probably n-th) Tapestry application, then "Enjoying Web Development with Tapestry" is something you should have at hant at all times. I own a PDF copy now but have to print it out anyway.

My understanding of Tapestry began from the author's of this book tutorials and I am happy to have a whole book now, especially updated for Tapestry 4.

This book is fantastic! I bought it as a PDF and it's well worth its price!

The examples are good, working (!!!) and covers the usual cases.

I'm developping my first Tapestry application after having read this book and I find myself already well knowledgeable about it!

A must for all Tapestry beginners!

This book is a real life saver. I was running out of time for a tapestry based POC that I had to do and I was trying all sorts of sources to learn about the framework. Nothing could help me much and that's when, while browsing through Amazon I ordered this book. 2-3 days into this book and I have some real stuff running. It's one of the best books that I put my hands on in a lifetime. It's full of diagrams and working examples. I love Tapestry now...thanks to the book!!!
