From the Back Cover

Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) is an application development platform for building robust enterprise systems. J2EE includes numerous Java APIs and tools including Enterprise JavaBeans, JavaServer Pages, and Servlets. Developers looking to leverage this complex platform need guidance not only on the features of each tool, but on using them together to create real-world systems.

J2EE Developer's Handbook provides both -- discussing the tools in the context of practical J2EE applications which demonstrate every aspect of J2EE development. In the Spring of 2003, Sun will relase J2EE 1.4 which includes numerous updates and new features such as JSP 2.0, EJB 2.1, and new APIs for creating J2EE Web Services and using the J2EE Connector Architecture.

First off, at the time I bought it, this was the only book on J2EE 1.4 published. I don't know if that's still the case, and it doesn't matter to me, because this is without a doubt the only book I would need.
I was kind of skeptical about it, because it promised to cover so many topics, but I was told where I bought it that I could return it within 60 days if I wasn't satisfied. So I figured it was worth a shot.
It covers everything about J2EE, and unlike the vast majority of other books, isn't a simple regurgitation of the numerous APIs. The best part is that it starts off with the core information you need, and then builds upon it. If you know a previous version of J2EE, you can easily skip to any chapter you want and learn what you need, because the core is the same, but if you're new to J2EE, you can just read it right through. Most books will discuss a topic, make a reference to another one, and give a brief explanation of the referenced topic. This makes readers, me at least, feeling a little lost, wondering exactly what's going on. Then that topic is covered 20 chapters later. This book, however, starts with the fundamentals and builds upon it. There's never a "which will be covered later" in the book.
I was afraid that the book would only skim over some topics, because it does cover the entire J2EE. However, due to the sheer size of the book (1350 content pages and another 300 pages on CD) it covers everything in detail. The only exception I think is EJBs, however anyone programming EJBs ought to pick up the O'Reilly Enterprise JavaBeans book anyway.

I've been very pleased with this book. The authors have done a very good job at jumping into the details of J2EE 1.4 early on in the book and continuing with that level of detail throughout all 1500 some pages! I admit to not having read the whole book yet, but the chapters on EJB, SOAP, and XML have been excellent.
I particularly like the use of UML class diagrams to present an API. It is simply much easier to understand an API by looking at a sexy picture showing relationships rather than staring at a JavaDoc page. The writing is good, the examples work, and the coverage is thorough and in great depth. All in one book! I'm quite pleased and have been recommending it to my mates interested in J2EE and Web Services.

This is my reference book that I liked most for J2EE. It describes all of the J2EE parts in alot of detail. It is different by having UML diagrams that describe each J2EE part then the author describes the J2EE part that the diagram shows. This makes it easy to understand that J2EE part. Also has code examples to run and in the book. Every J2EE part is covered like EJb, sevlets, Web services, JAXR, JMS, and on. They are able to cover this because the book is biggest one I have with almost 1500 pages. It is organized too. Parts are described in all in good sequence.

Format: Paperback
Bought this book and have been very impressed with the content. There is a LARGE amount of very solid material in this book. Total page count is 1490 pages and the pages I've read so far have been wonderful. There is just about everything in here related to J2EE, alot of material on EJB, new Web Services coverage, JAXR, DSML, you name it and it is there. They havent skimped either (see the page count above). They have alot of examples and some pretty cool diagrams that have helped me understand the J2EE APIs. It is all J2EE 1.4 and some additional material. I dont write reviews but it is clear that they spent a alot of time on this book. Ive also been very very happy so far with the book and it is a permanent addition to my library so I figure that they deserve a good review.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book based on the excellent reviews it had. I expected to learn J2EE (more specifically EJB, as I know most of the other related technologies). This book failed to really teach me much. When learning something, I am more concerned with the how and why, than with the the presentation of many API's, and then having to proceed from there making decisions regarding application contstruction in my development. Although it might sound like I was actually looking for a book on J2EE (or EJB) design, this is not the case. I simply want to understand the technologies that I am working with, and the motivations for using them in specific scenarios. As a reference material, I would probably give the book 4 to 5 stars. It is a book I can keep as an excellent reference of just about any J2EE related API, but I will have to buy another book in order to get a better understanding of the technologies I wanted to learn, like EJB. From the reviews it sounded like the authors actually succeeded in covering in-depth such a wide range of topics in one text. In my opinion, I think that it is maybe still just too much to cover for one book (if you really want to explain the how's and why's of everything).

I recommend this book to developers at any level who want to learn about J2EE. The authors did a great job at describing all of the meat inside J2EE. I was very happy with how thorough they were in covering each API in detail. Many J2EE books miss covering something that is imporant or gloss over some details. I wanted a book that covered everything even thoguh I wouldn't be needing to know it all right away.
Take a look at the table of contents and see what I mean. I can say that all of the content is carefully described and they provide diagrams illustrating the J2EE structure and code examples showing how to use each API. True to its name, it is my handbook for J2EE that I keep with me at work and on the road and so I wanted to give them a good review for a job well done. My only drawback is that the code for the J2EE 1.4 reference implementation needs to update the build scripts. But I sent an e-mail to one of the authors and he responded saying that the J2EE implementation changed and the code should work but they would send me and update their web site with the new reference implementation scritps. Since I am only using the code and the code works it was no big deal for me. I was pretty impressed that the author even responded to my e-mail since most don't.
