That's an important aspect of a technical book that is so often lost in todays reference manuals.

The book is definitely technical, but the writing style is very laid back, making it an enjoyable read.

I just wanted to write a quick review, letting anyone that is interested in learning how to develop portlets that this is right book to pick up. There are a few portlet development books out right now, and many are quite good, but none make learning about portlet development as easy and as straight forward as this book does.

This book is very focussed. It does not go into Maven or ANT or CMS or anything peripheral that doesn't directly effect portlet development. Some people may not like that, but for me, I wanted to learn portlet development, and learn it as quickly as possible without having to download a bunch of peripheral technologies like Maven to get the examples to work. All of the examples in the book can be coded and compiled using just the JDK and a portal server - they're that straight forward and easy to code. Of couse, I used MyEclipse, but that's another story. The fact is, the examples are very easy to write, easy to deploy, and easy to understand.

Also, the book includes chapters on JSR168 frameworks like JSF Struts and Ajax, if you can call ajaz a framework. Apparently, earlier editions didn't include these examples, which I can believe, because it was in these sections that you could see the most typographical errors. Still, the examples were very effective at teaching you how the frameworks fit into a portlet application, and while there were a few more typos in the text than I'd like to see, there were not errors in the code, and everything deployed as promised.

Just an all around great book about learning portlet development. It's about time that a book like this got written about portlet development.

Format: Paperback
The contents are basic, relevant, follows the specification standard, and uses open-source softwares only which is suitable for those who are new to portlet and hence, I give it good marks but I hate it when the typesetting, such as the font size is too small for the example code, the margin by the spine is too narrow which made me pry the book open, and what's with the informal expression makes the message so redundant and verbose. For example, page 90, first paragraph of "Portlet Session and the PORTLET_SCOPE" with words like "moan and groan" and "Java Gods" seems so fictional.
The worst thing about this book is the sample chapters of story novels at the end of the book which padded it and being such a small-sized book shouldn't cost so much and I felt I had overpaid for it. The author's independent publication spoils it.
Overall, I give it a grade C, as the author's website looks far more appealing with information which initially drawn me to this book.

This is a good introduction to portlets for the J2EE programmer. The chapters on Struts and JSF were very helpful. A little more detail on the way portals interact with portlets would be good (like a diagram showing the result of a single actionURL causing multiple renderURLs to be sent.)

Recommended.

I'm doing alot of portlet development, and I've struggled through a number of books and reference materials on the subject. I picked this book up because of all of the five star reviews it received, and I can tell you, I wasn't disappointed.

When I got the book, I opened it up and started reading, and I couldn't believe that by the time I put the book down, I'd just gone through the first 100 pages! It's just so easy to read, and the concepts are laid out in such a logical and sensible order. Every subject leads naturally into the next, and the very informal and conversation writing style of the book makes it very easy to read. It reads more like a conversation than a technical book, as though the author was right there with you, sharing his passion for the technology.

The examples are also very simple and straight forward, without any dependencies. So you can jump into one chapter and do all of the examples in it without having to jump back to a previous chapter or exercise. That's an important aspect of a technical book that is so often lost in todays reference manuals.

If you want to learn about how to develop portlets, or you have someone on your team that needs to learn the basics of portlet development, and learn it fast, this is the right book to get. You won't regret getting it. I didn't!

This is the right book for anyone trying to learn, or working with portal.

The book covers just about every aspect of JSR168, and it does it in a very thought out and methodical manner. The book is definitely technical, but the writing style is very laid back, making it an enjoyable read.

There's not other book on the market that does as good a job covering portlet development as effectively as this book does.

Format: Paperback
This book was just a Godsend for me. I'm new to Java, and used the same authors certification guide to get my SCJA certification,. I enjoyed the funny and conversational style of that book, and hoped that this one would be at the same level of quality. Indeed, the book delivers on its promise of making portlet programming easy and fun. All of the API gets covered in a way that makes it easy to learn.

The book focusses on what is important, and helps you learn the technology quickly. I wouldn't call it a reference book, but it does hit on all of the aspects of the API that are important and that you need to understand to become productive quickly.

If you have enjoyed this authors other books, you will enjoy this one. One thing I would say is that the author uses a very conversational and casual style. The book doesn't read like a normal tech book, but instead, reads like a fun and interesting conversation with an expert in the technology. However, for some people that have poor english skills, or don't have English as a first language, they may not get some of the humour or pop culture references. Yes, there are plenty of pop culture references in here. If you like The Simpsons (notice the color of the book cover?), or you know how much England beat Germany by in the World Cup, you'll get it.

A total recommend.
